  • Overview

    News out of Washington, DC, last week has many sectors of health care abuzz about the possibility of meaningful reforms to our system: President Barack Obama announced the initial framework of a commitment from six of the major players in the healthcare industry to cut nearly two trillion dollars in health care costs over the next 10 years. If the plan moves forward as it is currently stands, what will be the lasting impact on our work and our practices? Dr. James Rohack, president-elect of the American Medical Association and a leading figure in these high-level meetings at the White House, joins hosts Dr. Larry Kaskel and Dr. Michael Greenberg to share his perspective on the progress toward significant changes in healthcare.

    Dr. Kaskel and Dr. Greenberg will also reflect on the H1N1 frenzy over the past few weeks, and muse about the apparent gravitation toward Wikipedia among physicians who use the Web as a medical resource.
