I have an assignment for you good (and bad) people. I wish I could make it manditory, but I can’t. I know it is a pain to click on links and listen to podcasts, but you will not regret taking the time to listen to these two from Freakonomics:
How Many Doctors Does It Take To Start A Revolution (As a teaser, it partly discusses the fact that patients are less likely to die when cardiologists are away at a conference….)
How Do We Really Know What Works In Healthcare? (They share some startling information about the economics of healthcare utilization and reform…)
I am going to leave this up over the weekend and would love, love, love to have a discussion here in the comments for anyone who is interested.
(This was the final day of the Black and White Five Day Challenge, thanks to Cordelia’s Mom, Still. I have to say it was more exhausting trying to figure out who I could pass it on to than actually doing the photos! As for the last nominee, heck… I am gonna tag Gibber.)
