Do you feel like you’re working harder for less pay? When you were young, did you have dreams of being a noble caregiver, only to spend your days worrying about reimbursements or getting sued or the next cumbersome government regulation? Are your collections late? Did life NOT improve after the local health system acquired your practice?
Okay, forget being in the health care business—we are all patients sometimes, too. Do you feel like an actual human in the exam room or a numbered paper gown with dollars signs attached to it? Has trying to get well ever nearly bankrupted you?
Well, you’re not alone.
This is a tough time to run a medical practice—or be a patient—and we all know that is why, in fact, athenahealth exists. We are here to make it suck less.
For a light-hearted look at your plight—and ours—we have a little video. It's a parody of a song from the Tony Award-winning musical "Avenue Q."
Hang on. Things get really great at the 3:29 mark….
