         A recent LinkedIn post from a company specializing in a “service” that helps physicians appropriate more revenue from the new "Value-based Physician Reimbursement” system got me irritated and at the same time thinking about this in greater detail. This company’s product enabled physicians to look better to the payers and hence be able to appropriate a higher value for their services. It appeared bizarre to me that the physician payments not be based on the quality of service delivered by the physician but based on how the physicians can look better to the payers by using tools and services such as those being offered by this company. The existence of such “services” in the healthcare marketplace starkly illustrates how dysfunctional our healthcare has become- where you can appropriate more value for your services by gaming the system to look better, rather than becoming better.

If doctors can earn more by gaming the system with the help of a "company that helps them look better", then it is phony. How is it possible?

After 26 years of successfully practicing cardiology and taking excellent care of my patients- that is not considered quality anymore. The administrators have some dumb criteria of quality now. I am really sick of this.

I am not a physician and don't know much about healthcare. However, this does sound bizarre. I didn't realize healthcare is so dysfunctional
