Dutch surgeon wins landmark 'right to be forgotten' case | Technology | The Guardian
In what is said to be the first right to be forgotten case involving medical negligence by a doctor, the district court of Amsterdam subsequently ruled the surgeon had “an interest in not indicating that every time someone enters their full name in Google’s search engine, (almost) immediately the mention of her name appears on the ‘blacklist of doctors’, and this importance adds more weight than the public’s interest in finding this information in this way”.

(2) Unendowed with wealth or pity | MetaFilter
The only thing that results in anyone getting paid in health care, outside of hospital care, is the doctor being face to face with a patient. Therefore, the push from admin is to make “full time” doctors spend as close to 40 hours a week face to face with patients. But face to face time with patients is less than 50% of the time doctors spend working. The rest is charting, deciding what to do with test results, responding to patients who call or email, refilling medications, getting insurance authorization or filling out durable medical equipment forms, maybe once in a while reading a journal article or going to a conference. That medication you needed refilled early urgently because you were going out of town? Chances are that took a doctor about 3-5 minutes in the evening on unpaid time going through the mechanisms to make that happen while their family was eating dinner. Check the time stamp on the chart note. No one got paid to make that happen, so no one paid the doctor to do it. But your doctor likes you and didn’t want you to be off your meds when you’re on vacation so he or she sacrificed family time. Multiply that times 2000 patients (for a primary care doctor).

The Insulin Wars: How insurance companies farm out their dirty work to doctors and patients
It suddenly struck me that insurance companies and drug manufacturers had come upon an ingenious business plan: They could farm out their dirty work to the doctors and the patients. Let the doctors be the ones to navigate the bureaucratic hoops and then deliver the disappointing news to our patients. Let patients be the ones to figure out how to ration their medications or do without.

The Curious Subculture of Diagnosing Dead Artists by Their Work
“Doctors love to play at diagnosis,” admitted Dr. Michael F. Marmor, a Stanford University ophthalmology professor and author of several books about artists and eyesight. Most physicians reserve their diagnoses for patients, but there is a subculture of medical professionals fascinated by the health problems of famous, dead artists—and how they affected their work.
