About Intelli-Blog

Intelli-Blog is dedicated to the issues affecting private practice physicians and their patients. The blog was named Intelli-Blog to reflect the importance of “intelligence” or accurately, pieced together information in today’s complex and rapidly evolving healthcare environment. As hardworking physicians focused on patient care, we do not have time to research each intricate detail of the myriad of changes occurring under healthcare reform. Physicians in one part of the country truly do not know what is happening in another part of the country. When we speak to our patients, most of their knowledge is limited to the “less than balanced” versions presented in the media. Intelli-Blog is a place for all of us to examine the issues, ask questions and gather intelligence from physicians and patients across the nation. We welcome you to join us.
