More on Al Lewis' Book "Why No One Believes the Numbers"

Remember the DMCB's reviews (here and here) of Al Lewis' book Why No One Believes the Numbers?  The DMCB can't either, which is why you may want to check out this review by Christobel Selecky over at the excellent DMCB sister blog, The Doctor Weighs In.  It's worthwhile reading, especially since Ms. Selecky was the CEO of the star crossed disease management company LifeMasters. She knows of what she speaks and has the scars to prove it.

The DMCB finds her 6th paragraph slightly off topic but worthy of further discussion. Say what you like about the "evidence" supporting disease management, but let's at least be consistent and apply the same high standard to the patient centered medical home, the electronic health record and accountable care organizations.  Patients deserve nothing less.
