Costs of Care in the National Press
As the director of Costs of Care and a practicing doctor, I occasionally have the opportunity to offer public commentary on healthcare costs from the doctor's perspective.
I recently spoke with national media about the role (or lack there of) of costs in medical decision making. I'm quoted in last week's New York Times, for a great article entitled "Teaching Physicians the Price of Care".
The same article was syndicated here on National Public Radio, here on Kaiser Health News, as well as several regional newpapers and radio stations around the country. The quote that was used was also picked up for paraphrased versions of the story throughout the blogosphere.
Lastly, an op-ed I wrote aimed at doctors, called "Paying Attention to Patient's Pockets" went online yesterday.
Looking forward to your feedback/comments!
