What’s Wrong with Medicine–hope for the future

The house passed health reform but it is not certain that the Senate will follow suit. The bill will help with access but it is questionable how it will control costs and improve quality. We’ll need more action later, in all likelihood, to further address that issue.

The Times magazine has a terrific article discussing quality of care. Interestingly when quality and outcomes improved costs declined. Is there a lesson here?
