Doctor’s Digest®

Bridging the gap…between the business of medicine and the practice of medicine.

Jan / Feb 2007: Evidence-Based Medicine

Evidence-Based Medicine

While the concept was developed as a clinical approach, payers are now taking the lead in using data to restructure reimbursement and develop guidelines and best practices. No matter what they think of EBM, physicians must educate themselves on the topic and understand how it may directly affect them and their practice.

In this issue, Doctor’s Digest explores the practical aspects of EBM as it affects the business of medicine. From the computerization of medical records to reimbursement, liability and other financial issues, and even how physicians communicate with their patients, EBM is poised to make an impact on the day-to-day practice of medicine.
