In this Healthcare Informatics podcast, Associate Editor Gabriel Perna is joined by Paul Keckley, Ph.D., executive director for the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions. Keckley talked about a recent report from Deloitte on physicians’ overall attitude towards the medical profession, healthcare reform, and a number of other pertinent topics.
In the podcast, Keckley specifically talked about how there is a fault line and mixed beliefs in physician attitudes towards pay-for-performance reform, the value of electronic health records, and the consumer eHealth movement. This is the case when it comes to consumer eHealth. According to Keckley, many doctors still have a paternalistic viewpoint towards patients and why the notion of consumerism in healthcare “rubs them the wrong way.”
