Signs and symptoms

There are plenty of "signs and symptoms" of a failed health delivery system
that has levied an extra burden for physicians and nurses to assume clerical
roles as well. "Not enough to do it all", so patient care gets sacrificed,
over revenue cycle. 

Scribes or data entry support is critical so Docs and nurses can
"concentrate" on patients. Well informed patients historically "slow down"
patient physician visits that can perceived as an obstacle to many on
productivity metrics. Sad what EMR and corporatization of medicine is doing.

I have always thought that the well informed patient who can ask questions
and develop a relationship with their physician will get better healthcare.

 

Is there a place to "educate" patients on how best to do this and how to
best interact with physicians?

 

On the the physician side do they need to appreciate that a well informed
questioning patient is likely to help them with their diagnoses and
management?  Is that mentioned in Med School?

How about starting with a review of what is considered to be "classical
symptoms" and determining the percentage of diagnosed patients with the
associated disease truly have those symptoms?  Too often patients are told
that the failure to have the symptoms historically found with the disease
precludes the patient from having that disease. 

Not being in the risk group, too old, too young, wrong ethnicity,wrong
gender, lack of response to some medication, lack of some symptom, failure
to report the same..the list goes on.
