Annual Merrill C. Sosman lecture. Boston MA (USA), 1993/03.
Although some things have not changed much since merrill Sosman's time, many ethnical and economic aspects of medical practice are now being scrutinized much more closely than in the past.
Among the questions being asked are the following: Are physicians overutilizing technology?
How much and by what criteria are physicians being paid (or overpaid)?
Is the best possible quality of care being provided to patients?
During the past few years, several colleagues and I have worked with a group at Pennsylvania Blue Shield (PBS) to study utilization, cost, and quality issues associated with the practice of radiology by nonradiologists.
Compelling data and concepts have emerged from these studies.
