U.S. News and World Report

Medical practices report that the average cost for a single physician departure is $250,000 — a lot more than it would cost to address the problems that are causing them to leave.

Physician burnout is real, and it consists of three components: emotional exhaustion, a feeling of depersonalization or cynicism and a low sense of personal accomplishment in one’s work.

Exclusive - Transatlantic divide: how U.S. pays three times more for drugs

The argument from Pharma is that research is so expensive but that still never explained why the US pays more than other Western Countries for the drugs. The other argument is that US consumers offset the prices by paying for more generics. This makes no sense as generics come on the market because the brand manufacturer lost the exclusive trademark due to time. Generics are then sold to every country by a different manufacturer so it still does not explain why brand manufacturer charges so much to the US.

apple.news U.S. prices for the world's 20 top-selling medicines are, on average, three times higher than in Britain, according to an analysis carried out for Reuters.

President Signs SGR ‘Patch’ Bill, ICD-10 Officially Delayed | Journal of AHIMA

President Obama, yesterday April 1, 2014, signed the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 effectively delaying the implementation of the ICD-10 coding system for at least another year.

By including the vague phrase "at least until" before the October 1, 2015, date, it remains unclear as to whether the coding system will even be implemented next year. As noted in the article below, the American Health Information Management Association will seek clarification of the exact length of the delay as well as other technical issues.

This new delay continues the healthcare industry's frustration regarding the change to the ICD-10 coding system.

http://journal.ahima.org/2014/04/01/president-signs-sgr-patch-bill-icd-10-officially-delayed/

journal.ahima.org On Tuesday President Obama signed into law a bill that requires the federal goverment to delay the adoption of ICD-10-CM/PCS for at least one year.

BREAKING: SGR, ICD-10 extensions approved by Senate | Modern Healthcare

Another delay in the Implementation of ICD-10 Coding System?

YES! The Senate voted last night and in a 63-35 vote in favor of the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 the October 1, 2014 deadline to implement the ICD-10 coding system in the United States has been delayed for yet another year.
The bill awaits the president's signature; but there is no indication he will not sign the bill.
There remains no explanation as to why the delay in the deadline was included in this piece of legislation or what the wording "at least one year" means for the actual implementation of the coding system.
