The interests of various groups--physicians, hospital administrators, drug companies, device manufacturers, and Medicare—affect the older patient’s experience in the office. Physicians avoid home visits in the interest of achieving work/life balance; hospitals buy medical practices to maximize admissions; drug companies use point-of-care marketing to sell pharmaceuticals; device manufacturers lobby physicians to order tests; and Medicare mandates medication reviews and after-visit summaries.

Keywords:   Meaningful use, Point of care advertising, Test-ordering, Work-life balance
