Healthcare Triage: Regional Difference in Procedures and Prices

I’ve been travelling, so I’m late to post this. Sorry!

You might think that once drugs, devices and medical procedures are shown to be effective, they quickly become available. You might also think that those shown not to work as well as alternatives are immediately discarded.

Reasonable assumptions both, but you’d be wrong. That’s the topic of this week’s Healthcare Triage.

This episode was adapted from a column Austin and Jon Skinner wrote for the Upshot. Links to sources and further reading can be found there.
