Insurance Companies frequently send letters out informing patients that they will not any longer cover medications that I prescribe. It appears that they are targeting #Independent #Doctors that they cannot #Control.
Are there any other doctors that see this pattern? Why on Earth would I remove meds from patients that are doing so well & have no side effects? It would be against my medical oath of "do no harm."
Read the letter they sent to me. CVS writes: " CVS Caremark wants to help your patients stay adherent to their medication therapy." Really? So you discontinue coverage for patients that are doing so well & make them pay for it completely themselves, & you claim you wish to help?

Dear IPS, ask Indian state to lift the communication blackout so people and media can talk to local psychiatriss. Supporting state policies seriously shadows your credibility for blind nationaism. #StandwithKashmir thehindu.com/news/cities/mu…
I am a Kashmiri psychiatrist and sadly member of IPS. I have worked & researched in #kashmir. There are 💯 of papers documenting the trauma and torture of local population. Sadly you stand with psychiatrists like the ones in Nazi Germany who put ethics behind. #StandwithKashmir
It would be good to know if you have spoken to any of your member in Kashmir chapter of IPS? Probably you don't care as it's about national interest and blind faith in propaganda news. You even planned to troll @TheLancet

Doctor-patient relationship is crucial and I wonder if a patient is aware of the hospital’s policy (not the doctor) for a visit time allotment (in minutes).

“Administrative tasks have become so burdensome ....only thirteen per cent (13%) of a physician’s day, on average, is spent on doctor-patient interaction” Dr. Topol

Today's article in @TheKenWeb contemplates "what ails" Indian #ECG Companies and concludes "Plenty as it turns out, starting with #healthcare providers themselves."

the-ken.com/story/what-ai-…

I have heard these sort of comments a lot in various flavours from different #HealthIT
What usually happens is a group of highly skilled, honest, hardworking Engineers or Management Graduates #Startups develop a product or service, test it and find it successfull but when they want to market is doctors don't buy
So
They start blaming doctors, directly or indirectly saying that this is a magic solution which will revolutionalise health and save 20 crores people per year, but this dull headed docs are not able to see the potential and / or afraid of technology

*Thread* Was at a husting today AND when I highlighted the actual #waitinglist statistics for access to #healthcare #consultants and lack of #frontlinestaff #nurses & #GPs a sitting MEP & member of one our main political parties aimed to DISMISS the data... 1/
The data I presented was not compiled by me but by many prestigious organisations who represent #nurses #doctors #midwives #consultants #pharmacists #paramedics #carers #physios #OTs (tag anyone you wish here) 2/
The response I (and the audience got) was along the lines of “with technology data can be wrong” and “people don’t turn up to appointments”. I had no hestitation in finding an example and explained just how bloody difficult it can be for the #elderly to attend clinics... 3/

I've been hearing a lot of resignation in people's voices and tweets, in the face of the latest tragedy at #PowaySynagogueShooting. People are giving up hope that we can ever bend the curve on our #gunviolence epidemic.

--This thread is dedicated to destroying that despair.—
6 years ago, we watched those babies walk out of #SandyHook - & were torn apart, as a nation, by the memory of those who didn't make it.

Many of us had been told that we "couldn't" talk about guns.

But after Sandy Hook, many of us said "no more; we will not be silent."
A few bravely started talking and writing about why #gunviolence was a #publichealth issue. Those few, turned into a wave. The groundwork was slowly laid.

@RichDuszak 1- MT @Aiims1742 “This @katekelly article reads like a paid infomercial for EPIC (in fact, I actually looked for the “This is an advertisement” disclaimer). Would have been nice to have interviewed one or two end users of the chocolate factory product.”

@RichDuszak @Aiims1742 @katekelly 2- Nice digs, clever marketing spin, BUT Epic highly disliked by users. #EHR has significantly disrupted relationships w #patients, #ptexp, led to clinician & pt dissatisfaction, & is seen as one cause of #burnout. @JackMurtha hcanews.com/news/ehrs-are-… @BarbaraMcAneny @meggerber

#Education
A University professor once wrote an expressive and Avery apt message to his students at the doctorate, masters and bachelors levels and placed it at the entrance in the university he taught in..
The #Message reads as below..

“Collapsing any nation does not require use of atomic bombs or the use of long range missiles. It only requires lowering the quality of education and allowing cheating in the examinations by the students".
The #patient dies in the hands of such #doctors

And the buildings #collapse in the hands of such #engineers

And the money is #lost in the hands of such #accountants

And #humanity dies in the hands of such religious #productivity scholars ...

I am pregnant and asked 3 health care providers about getting the flu vaccine this year. I know the flu vaccine is safe. I knew I wanted it. I asked anyway, for reassurance (1/10)
I am NOT vaccine hesitant. But as a former #naturopath I used to be afraid of vaccines. I was taught to be afraid of vaccines and not to trust the scientific consensus regarding vaccine safety (2/10)
The brainwashing from my #naturopathic days at @bastyr still lingers (3/10)
