Quotes

Former CMS Administrator Donald Berwick, MD, made his view of the deal public an opinion piece published by the Boston GlobeBoston Globe Oct. 19: "You don't have to be an antitrust lawyer to predict the consequences of even more market power: higher prices, less competition, and the squeezing out of smaller players."
"Politics is full of people explaining to people how awesome they are," said Falchuk. "Even the positive ads tend to be, 'I'm awesome. How could you question my awesomeness?'"
"We found that while patients were very satisfied, the clinicians were less so because they could not touch the patients during exams," Dixon says. "Some clinicians thought that while we can make decisions remotely about their blood pressure, their diabetes, their reflux, or their cholesterol, it's weird that we can't touch them. While some like it, some don't want to practice this way ever."
