Consistency is the Hobgoblin of Little Minds
“Consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance
There was a recent publication from NPR concerning a study of physicians who treat with Seroquel (an antipsychotic drug). These physicians received letters from Medicare that gave a general warning that they were being “flagged/warned” as above-average prescribers of this medication. Guess what, two years later and without follow-up, the physicians’ usage of this drug dropped dramatically.
We have found that scientific peer-to-peer intervention with treating physicians is one of the most cost-effective techniques to improve outcomes. This is best handled by a professional, highly credentialed panel of providers who will engage treating physicians with data on the latest science and industry guidelines. Nothing is more rewarding and cost-effective than providers who are willing to listen and then voluntarily modify their protocols.
No attorneys. No regulators. No disputes. No appeals.
Just doctors who decide to do better and change their minds. Sometimes you need a hobgoblin to correct a wrong.
Call us. We can do better.
