Getting with the program

 

Fam Pract Manag. 2000 Nov-Dec;7(10):12.

To the Editor:

The articles in the May 2000 issue of FPM are the best I've seen in any journal about getting with the program. Health care and medicine have changed and should become evidence-based. It's time we focused on what to do rather than what not to do. Coding, documentation, strategic reorganization, risk and number needed to treat (NNT) are things practicing physicians must know and use.
