Aetna Research Shows Positive Impact of Consumerism on Health Care Decisions: "Health care consumerism can be a positive force in the health care marketplace". I would have thought this would be obvious, but this study just documents the fact that if you educate patients, they will utilise the medical facilities you offer them sensibly and rationally ! By comparison, if we continue to allow doctors to make all the healthcare decisions, they will continue to misuse the money by buying the latest medical toys and gizmos ! Everyone does what's in their own best interests - and patients need to come first !
