It was one year ago that healthcare reform legislation was signed into law. Dr. Michael Newman, a Washington D.C. doctor has had a front seat in some of the discussions in the nation's capitol. He spoke to the Central Oregon Medical Society Monday night about some of the anxiety doctors may be feeling. “And I think physicians are understandably concerned about the impact on practices, regulation and about impact on incomes. But at the same time, also see opportunities for innovative ways of delivering care.” Dr. Newman says Oregon has always been on the cutting edge of progressive medical care with our Medicare expansion and our dignity with death provision. He believes the Healthcare Reform Bill is a good first step in innovative care; that will eventually bring down costs and have better medical outcomes.
