We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
That doctor will be a corporate employee, not an independent professional you consult with. He or she will be tasked by the employer with (primarily) keeping your health index measurements within certain limits - by whatever means necessary - keeping your medical care as low-cost as possible, and carrying out whatever other mandates he or she may be given, which probably will have little to do with your health as a particular patient. (Example: "At least 65% of office visits must include starting, stopping, or altering a medication for the patient.")
Not the same thing at all as having a doctor who's beholden to the patient and to his or her ethics.
A doctor told me he pulled the pin when told by the bean counters, he needed to see 1.34 patients more a day. While he had no problem seeing one more, it was the 34/100s patient he had trouble scheduling.
On a personal note, a medical visit seems more like a 50k mile check up by a mechanic on the car than a personal encounter.
There is no relationship with the doctor in the new systems, only a business relationship with the "health center".
It has its downsides, but also its ups.
It can be a lot faster to see a doctor this way. If your own is full or not working on a day (most will be part timers, and they do have vacations and get sick themselves) you can go see another as easy as seeing your own, and at the same cost.
Often there will be an integrated pharmacy, no having to drive half way across town to pick up your prescription only to have the pharmacist have trouble reading the handwriting of your doctor (yes, they are now supposed to use printed prescription forms, but many doctors won't do that).
And if they're organised on a large scale (like here, city wide, and integrated with the hospital) there's a single integrated patient database.
Makes it a lot less likely you're going to end up with bad decisions as that specialist at the hospital now has access to your medical records from other doctors in the system, and can see that the treatment he was thinking of would clash with something done last year that he wasn't previously aware of.
