I have just finished reading a fascinating article in the June 1, 2009 issue of "The New Yorker".
"The Cost Conundrum, What a Texas town can teach us about health care" by Atul Gawande, explores the differences in individual doctor practices in hospitals and clinics which operate for profit and non-profit.
The article raises many interesting questions and thoughts which aren't usually a part of our national discussion. I recommend it to anyone who wants to better understand the debate from a different angle.
