Opinion: One form, faster prescriptions, better healthcare
The time patients spend in waiting rooms at their physician's office may soon be shorter, because the wait for one simple, commonsense health care reform in Michigan may soon be over.

These forms create a significant administrative burden that delays patient care, increases patient wait times, and limits the amount of time Michigan physicians and their staffs can spend directly with patients addressing their health needs.
