What do doctors think?
Writing anything about physicians’ perspectives is difficult. Physicians’ perspectives vary incredibly across pretty much any dimension one would look at. That makes the American Medical Association’s job pretty difficult. As the organization that represents doctors, The AMA represents people across a broad spectrum of opinions. The AMA weighs in on issues that can be very controversial, including measuring doctor quality and health care system reform.
Today on Getting Better Health Care, I interview AMA president Dr. Cecil Wilson. He explains what the AMA is, how it works, and why it chose to be a productive participant in developing health care reform legislation.
