SPOTLIGHT: White House tells docs to embrace change

Physicians should not let their frustration over the still-unchanged sustainable growth rate formula  distract them from the improvements that healthcare reform delivers to their patients and the profession, White House healthcare officials stated in a paper published in this week's Annals of Internal Medicine. Rather, it's time to embrace change, wrote Nancy-Ann DeParle, director of the White House Office of Health Reform, and colleagues, indicating that post-reform survival virtually requires that change to include expansion and collaboration with other entities in the form of accountable care organizations or patient-centered medical homes.
