• Relman vs. Reinhardt

    Had it been possible for Arnold Relman and Uwe Reinhardt to be bloggers in 1986, the content of their Health Affairs article that year might have generated a lot of traffic. It includes their exchange by letter on for-profit health care and physician ethics. It’s ungated, so you only have yourself to blame for missing the fireworks.

    Remind me not to pick a fight with widely-published scholars of our health care system with last names beginning with “Re”.

    • Wow! Impressive and thought provoking fireworks. Unfortunately, many of Reinhardt’s comments strike uncomfortably close to how I’ve felt about our profession for many years. Thanks for sharing.
