Panel Discusses Upcoming Health Care Reforms


One of the provisions of federal health reform is designed to minimize unnecessary care. It's a conversation some doctor's dread: how to explain to a patient in a short clinic visit why they don't need a particular treatment they want. Dr. Randy Linton is CEO and president of Eau Claire's Mayo Clinic Health System. He spoke at a roundtable event in Madison featuring health system administrators from around Wisconsin, "It's not an easy, simple conversation to have. I think that's why this conversation has not been in the public front by now, other than from a fear perspective."
