But medical wisdom itself has taken a large hit; wisdom has limited value in today's marketplace. Now, physicians are mere health care providers (HCPs) or primary care providers (PCPs) — bumblebees in unit-based assembly lines of care. Yes, yes, Medicare is trying to reward doctors who have fewer complications in their practices. But we're talking money here, not dignity. The EMR forces doctors to spend inordinate amounts stuck on the limbs of decision trees. Help! Get me down! Well, does your patient have pneumonia, yes or no? Not sure? Unless you check a box, you cannot enter further data. An hour goes by, there's no more fried chicken, or the cafeteria is closed.
