We spend a lot of time performing thorough assessments. Are we missing something really, really important that can help with prognosis?
I sometimes wonder if being able to quickly predict outcomes of care will be of high importance as payment models change.
It seems that the philosophy of less care (diagnostic tests, injections, medications & surgery) is better care. This current study intrigued me because it looked at the results of nonoperative care for rotator cuff tears.
