In a 2016 report published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, researchers – including representatives of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health System – studied 57 U.S. physicians in family medicine, internal medicine, cardiology, and orthopedics in New Hampshire and three other states to determine how they spent their time.

Mike Cote’s Business Editor’s Notebook: Physicians going it alone to reduce paperwork

By MIKE COTE Union Leader Business Editor

At a recent meeting in Manchester about the high cost of health care, Dr. Eric Kropp was the lone physician to address the group. The primary-care doctor has gotten used to being on his own. Kropp employs a part-time office worker but otherwise operates his Concord practice by himself. He doesn’t answer to a hospital group. He doesn’t bill insurance. He doesn’t spend gobs of time entering medical data into a computer. Patients pay him a monthly fee for office visits and other services, and he interacts with them directly. Have an odd rash?
