True progress in measuring the worth , and therefor the full value, of primary care providers and their services cannot be accomplished until the non-compliant patient outliers are dropped from their rosters; specific and not general codes for patient noncompliance with diet or smoking, or HTN.therapy, or due to self destructive, high risk behaviors, need to be developed that allow primary care providers to notify insurers to not use the stats from these patients to negatively measure and form quality and financial reports on the providers. Until then, primary care providers will continually suffer criticisms that we are not doing a good job and, hence, are not deserving of added compensation.
