Business In Medicine

The Lung Doctor has published "Business In Medicine" on Scribd. "Business In Medicine" is a brief discussion of the economic impact of the health care industry, health care reform, how physicians are actually paid for health care services provided, physician employment and contract concerns, and medical documentation. The target audience is health care providers, but the information is beneficial to all health care consumers and legislators.

"Business In Medicine" is a great primer for medical students and physicians in training. The health care industry is a complex web of predatory practices involving every component of the health care system: legislation, government run health care insurance, private health care insurance companies, hospitals, and medical professional groups.

The discussion of medical documentation includes the Medicare E&M Service Coding Audit and Worksheet from e-MedTools.
