Health Leaders Media

While primary care physicians, lagging behind other specialists in salaries, are eager to tap into the Medicare Primary Care Incentive Program's multimillion dollar bonus largess, some doctors are upset about bureaucratic "hoops and hassles" in seeking funds, says the head of the American Academy of Family Physicians.

3 technologies that will change healthcare forever
Care2
When you think about how primitive medical technology was just a few years ago, it seems surprising that the human race managed to survive.
