Healthcare Providers Share Their Holiday Wish List

Healthcare Providers Share Their Holiday Wish List

It's that time of year.

It's time to make a list, check it twice, and send it out to all of your relatives, friends, and perhaps even the big guy in the North Pole. We asked members of our editorial advisory board what they're wishing for this holiday season. Is it healthcare related or is it personal? Is it practical or is it a "pie in the sky" kind of gift?

Here's what they had to say.

My wish is for electronic records but actually talk to each other. Isn’t this one of the reasons why the government gave a stipend for individuals to adopt electronic records to begin with?

Also to abolish prior authorizations.

Universal Health care.

My wish is not to be referred to as "provider"

My wish, though probably not popular among physicians, is for universal healthcare (single payer) system in the United States. I just think that dealing with multiple claim forms (all different), multiple payers, lack of insurance, etc, etc, etc, just takes a lot of the fun out of practicing medicine in the United States.

That is my wish as well!

What you are really wishing for is Direct Care. Imagine not having to fill out ANY forms and just focusing on taking care of the patient. Single payer sounds good because you think you won’t have to fill out 15 different forms. In reality, you’ll be filling out one form that is 15x longer.
