Opinion | No one likes surprise medical bills. So why does congressional action seem so unlikely?

"If Congress fails to stand up to special interests here, what hope is there for legislation that addresses bigger health-care issues, such as exorbitant drug prices?" Good point by @Penn's Dr. Exekiel Emanuel. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/09/04/no-one-likes-surprise-medical-bills-so-why-does-congressional-action-seem-so-unlikely/

Blame special interests at hospitals and emergency rooms, which are lobbying hard to block bipartisan legislation.

Ditch the “stupid stuff” that drives doctors crazy

Excessive administrative burdens can take a toll on #physicianwellbeing. See how a Hawaiian health system is eliminating “stupid stuff” to free up time for doctors, other health professionals. #WellnessWednesday http://ow.ly/GhME50m0kba

Physician administrative burdens can take a toll on well-being. This health system is changing that by eliminating “stupid stuff” from daily requirements.
