Important News- Creation Of USGAEMA

        Ya’ll a new government agency has been approved.  It is the United States Government Agency for the Elimination of Medical Abbreviations, or USGAEMA.

        Now before you worry I want to reassure.  It is fully approved and sanctioned by HIPAA, COLA, CLIA, AND other important government offices.  Docs should apply for their application prior to April 15, 2009, and must use both their UPIN and NPI numbers as well as their SSN.  (They invented it to give us full rights to our privacy)

        And also I don’t want you to worry about this being any kinda partisan issue.  We have been assured by the USGAO the measure has full BS.  (Bipartisan support)

        Yall have a good’un.  Off to play music today.  (I am a bit concerned, though.  I am a member of both the IBMA and SPBGMA.  I hope they don’t find out and eliminate them, too.)

    I practice a profession where acronyms and abbreviations are rare. My husband, however, especially when he’s working a government contract, practices a profession almost entirely comprised of acronyms. Half the time, I have no idea what the hell he’s talking about…
