That's right! Obama is bringing bus service to the healthcare industry! Love public transportation? You'll love public health care! Maybe we can pair off and do the cough test. Or we can line up and do colonoscopies. Just think of the benefits Obama is bringing to us! What a hero!

Group Appointments With Doctors: When Three Isn't A Crowd

When visiting the doctor, there may be strength in numbers.

In recent years, a growing number of doctors have begun holding group appointments -- seeing up to a dozen patients with similar medical concerns all at once. Advocates of the approach say such visits allow doctors to treat more patients, spend more time with them (even if not one-on-one), increase appointment availability and improve health outcomes.

Some see group appointments as a way to ease looming physician shortages. According to a study published in December, meeting the country's health-care needs will require nearly 52,000 additional primary-care physicians by 2025. More than 8,000 of that total will be needed for the more than 27 million people newly insured under the Affordable Care Act.

"With Obamacare, we're going to get a lot of previously uninsured people coming into the system, and the question will be 'How are we going to service these people well?' " says Edward Noffsinger, who has developed group-visit models and consults with providers on their implementation. With that approach, "doctors can be more efficient and patients can have more time with their doctors."

Some of the most successful shared appointments bring together patients with the same chronic condition, such as diabetes or heart disease. For example, in a diabetes group visit, a doctor might ask everyone to remove their shoes so he can examine their feet for sores or signs of infection, among other things. A typical session lasts up to two hours. In addition to answering questions and examining patients, the doctor often leads a discussion, often assisted by a nurse.

Make sense!!!! Glad to see you on board.

Now I get to pay for my healthcare, and a bunch of liberals, and I get to get my exams with these people at the same time!

The good news is, I hear there are insurance programs coming out that include a plane trip out of the country for your doctors' visits. Too bad we can no longer get quality healthcare in America. But don't worry about the Messiah. He has a private physician traveling with him. He doesn't ride the healthcare bus.

Anyone with experience with public health or chronic care knows you don't know what you are talking about. Groups for diabetics, hypertensives, heart surgery recovery and behavioral health are evidence based best practices. I doubt you understand the concept of evidence based.

Oh, well... If only people that have experience should comment, then Obamacare should be thrown out. The closest Obama has been to medicine was when his father ended up in the hospital after his drunk driving incident in Kenya.

If you are saying he wrote the bill himself then you are certainly giving a lot of credit. While the president has at least double your intelligence the bill was written by medical and insurance professionals. How do you know about the drunk driving accident was your sister in the car with him?

I don't want to take up your time - you've got crosses to burn, mayonnaise sandwiches to eat, pro-wrestling to watch, etc. etc.

Google it. It's how his father died. No, I wasn't there, nor my sister. But I understand why you might think that a possibility since he was impregnating and leaving women around the globe.
