An article in today's NY Times caught my eye...seems the attorney general in New York is pushing for a new fair rating system where consumers can get quality ratings on prospective specialists. A study indicates that current physician rating systems are primarily price-driven indexes, and have little to do with quality, outcomes and other factors most important to health-advice seeking consumers. Makes sense when you consider that healthcare generally has a relatively low elasticity of demand.
