Why these are toughest times for U.S. physicians



Robert Pearl, M.D., CEO of the Permanente Medical Group, writes here that now is the hardest time to be a physician in America.

The big culprits:

Fee-For-Service System Corrupts Medical Practice. 

Growing Costs To Consumers Affect Doctors.

Electronic Health Records Can Thwart Physician Performance.

But Dr. Pearl points to some organizations, such as  the Mayo Clinic, Kaiser Permanente and Geisenger Clinic, that have overcome many of American healthcare’s problems and improved the lives of patients and physicians as a result.
