Money will be lost in health care. This is true no matter how we describe it. Print

Does anyone in medicine, particularly emergency medicine, understand why we lose money? Why we have to push those metrics so hard to capture every dime? I mean, we're  constantly reminded that satisfaction scores, and time-stamps and time to door, time to needle, time to discharge, reduced "left without being seen" scores are connected to the money we make. Medicine now is far less about the wonder of the body, the ravages of disease, the delight of the diagnosis and the thrill of healing. Medicine, now, is clicks and time-stamps, clipboards and strategies, through-put, input, out-put, put-out, burned out.
