A lot goes on inside of a physicians office. In order for a physician to be able to practice and I really wish they would come up with another term because to me it seems that I've been among rehearsal for several years. Because, hey these physicians are only practicing. Is this the implication that another being is doing the actual work? It's scary and for some physicians, please don't say that the heavenly father has guided you to do this, really! Practicing or simply just playing one, well all the world's a stage. Physicians have to have a licence in the state that they practice medicine and they need a DEA or rather drug enforcement administration certificate in order to be able to prescribe medications. They also have to have malpractice insurance and for each and every health insurance company they decide to accept insurance from they need information from them. The problem becomes that there are just too many websites to go through and also the completion of paperwork. Of course you guessed it, this makes it more difficult for the front desk worker to do in between patient visits, pre-certifications, referrals, labs, making appointments, tasking medications, and listening to each and every problem that someone is having. Believe me, getting test results from different facilities and getting information from patients who can't remember being there is a trying thing. Also patients who just talk, talk, talk when there is nothing more to say on the subject and making things more difficult than what they really have to be is something else. Why can't physicians have one website that they have to go to to renew, apply, update and cancel physician licences, certificates and everything else to keep a physician up and going in the office. The National Physicians Registry is the website that physicians would use to go to in order to obtain their medical licence, DEA and malpractice insurance- all you need to do to be compliant is to select the state that you currently practice medicine in. Why would a national physicians registry be beneficial? Because, all the front desk worker would need to do is to log in and assist the physician in updating any info needed to continue their field of medicine regarding licences, certificates and insurance. A physician can view their licences, certificates and insurance on-line and if they need to take CME courses for cost discount and other requirements those courses or applications can be completed and or accessed within the National Physician's Registry. There would be no need for the front desk worker to write a computer program called "countdown to retirement", because they have gone berserk due to the fact that they have to access several other websites and complete and e-mail or fax forms ect. With the National Physicians Registry it is a complete physician portal that the physician can use to see if they need to take courses for discount and or credit and renew licenses and certificates. When there is new and important information especially concerning healthcare and other requirements for physicians and pertinent Medicare information the National Physician's Registry is the website to use and stay updated!
