Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts the show today talking the increasingly poor U.S. economy.  Contending that Americans need to cut costs where they can and suggesting healthcare as one area.  Asserting that people should educate themselves about their health so they can take of most health challenges themselves.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article concerning a frightening new trend in the medical industry.  More and more health insurers including Medicare using "pay-for-performance" programs.  Meaning that doctors and hospitals increasingly are wanting "extra money" to provide quality care.  Contending that without the extra bucks there is no incentive for doctors to control hospital infections and medical errors.  Why should they?  They ask because they get paid anyway.
