    Will AI Deliver on Its Promise in Health Care?

    A study on generative AI implementation in health care delivery, which describes the process problem in healthcare - the productivity paradox.  The comparison to rapid EHR adoption is a bad one - EHRs are mandated payment systems, not a productivity tool.  The basis for success of AI implementation across healthcare areas is going to be whether it makes people (practitioners, patients) able to function as humans better, or worse.  A good framework article and study.

    Some Foreign-Trained Physicians Could Skip Residency to Practice Medicine in Florida

    Florida is now the third state to come up with a path for licensure for foreign-trained, practicing physicians. There’s two plans being looked at. One similar to Tennessee - practice two years under supervision, the other waives the residency requirement but has a healthcare provider employment requirement. The biggest opponent so far seems to be foreign medical schools.
