Essay: To curb repeat hospital stays, pay doctors

New York Times, December 1, 2009

In this essay published online by the New York Times, cardiologist and author Sandeep Jauhar, MD, contends that unless doctors view cost-cutting goals as their own, policy makers don't stand a chance of achieving them. Jauhar says that to curb the costs, Congress and the Obama administration are considering bonus payments to hospitals with low readmission rates and penalties on those with high rates. But these incentives are misdirected, he says.
