Ashford University HCA 305 Week 2 Assignment Disclosure of Physician Information

Disclosure of Physician Information

The dispute over exposing the comparative performance of physicians on a wide spectrum of variables has been resolved in favor of the consumers of health care.  Despite physician protests, a number of states have passed legislation that gives the public access to physician information, including disciplinary records, malpractice actions, and whether a physician has lost hospital privileges.  In a three to four page, (excluding title and reference page), APA formatted, double-spaced paper, respond to the following questions:

Are the physician reports cards fair and balanced? Take a position on this issue and explain your view.  Provide at least two examples from references that support your position.

Do physician report cards provide information consumers need to make medical decisions?  Why or why not? Explain your answer.

Support your position with two references in addition to the textbook. Note: one of the two references may be a professional website.
