Dr Jonas, your host, holds a late night session about morbid measurement, murderous metrics which are killing healthcare.  The NYT article "How Measurement Fails Doctors and Teachers" by Robert Wachter in the Sunday Review is a timely message of importance to the nation.  We will discuss it.

How does this relate to Family Medicine?  Many ways.  We have abandoned our essence as unmeasurable fluff.  We have agreed to be measured by wigeteers and come up short for our patients.  Patient autonomy be damned and meaningful use be honored seemed to be our motto.  We failed to exert the leadership that would protect our patients from massive amounts of bonus based healthcare.  The EMR outranked medical ethics.  Is there hope?
