Perspectives - September 2014
The prospect of universal health insurance coverage was threatened when the Supreme Court carved out exemptions to employer-based health coverage, ACP’s president says in his column about the College’s support of the Affordable Care Act and preventive services without cost sharing.
Patient-centered medical homes work because they incorporate best practices, pay internists for coordinating care, and ensure accountability in achieving healthy outcomes. Results from early adopters are showing positive results.
Clinicians and the organizations in which they practice are moving beyond episode-based health care delivery and into the communities in which they exist, delivering services that would normally seem outside the scope of medical practice.
This issue covers topics including clinical research on gluten sensitivity, proper preoperative assessments, and how to effectively prescribe methadone.
