Managed Care

 

 

February 1999

We may be heading toward a single-payer health care system — without showing the public all the uncomfortable implications.
Martin A. Hadelman
Two California HMOs are hanging their physician group ratings out on the Internet for the world, literally, to see.

Smaller purchasers are less likely than larger ones to use health plan report cards, but to say they don't care is unfair. More information about providers would help.

Michael D. Dalzell
A disease management program by any other name might go belly up — pronto. But there are ways to avoid the quick fizzle.
Frank Diamond
Although most PPMs turned out not to be knights in shining armor, there are other organizational models that can truly help physician practices.
Why put impediments in the way of a physician you're offering to take into the practice? The productivity bonus can work against you both.
