Mandatory MOC | AI’s Lucky Winners | No Site Neutrality

Here’s why: Multiple Hypothesis Testing – Like a coin flipping contest where five of the 100 participants get “heads” 8 out of 10 times, a certain number of “lucky” AI competitors are going to land the most accurate scores even if those models aren’t necessarily better.

Goal Conflicts – Even though some may view these contests as a viable way to find good models or useful techniques, this is hard to do if you can’t confirm if a model was actually the best or if it “just happened to fit the under-powered test set.” Instead, the real goals of these contents are (or at least should be) “fun, community building, talent scouting, brand promoting, and attention grabbing.” Those are all solid goals, by the way.

No Site Neutrality Hospitals landed a big Medicare victory last week when a U.S. federal court overturned the CMS “site-neutral pay policy.” The nearly 10-month old policy paid all healthcare providers the same for performing the same outpatient procedures, regardless of whether services were delivered at off-campus hospital clinics or at private practices.

Unhappy Physicians – Physician groups were not happy about the end of site neutrality, noting that the payment imbalance put private practices at a disadvantage, drove up healthcare costs, and propelled the healthcare consolidation trend.
