With the nationalization of electronic medical records, I am certain that a few radiologists...
have covered up for each other. They flag each other on EMR if there is potential malpractice. How can one get an anonomous second opinion now?
Great point. But in all fairness to the medical professionals, they aren't the ones who asked for a MRI of a patient in Pennsylvania to be read by a doctor in Australia because it's the middle-of-the-night at the PA hospital. It's the hospital administration that has taken these cost-cutting measures. And why take these steps? Because the insurance companies (who never seem to have trouble making a profit) pay hospitals on a sliding scale, based on how quickly they get patient from point A. to Point "O" which stands for "Out the door."
Unfortunately this isn't a quick fix and politicians don't want to take on the insurance companies...it would be like asking them to go after the tobacco companies.
