A Novel Way to Present Health Data
We published an op-ed in the Baltimore Sun on November 2 discussing the use of BRCTs in the media. Please read it and if you agree with its main points make a comment in the comment section at the end of the article.
We believe that accurate and easily understandable health care reporting is crucial to facilitating shared decision making between doctor and patient, to reducing over-treatment and over-testing, and to increasing the quality of health care delivery at a lower cost. Ultimately once patients and doctors can look at accurate health outcomes data together, then both will be more satisfied with the decision making process.
