Curing patients of diseases has not stopped the flow of patients yet and we are far more efficient now then ever in the past. There are always new things that need to be treated. Besides the bread and butter is the basic stuff anyway... My arms is broken.... Here is your x-rays, your cast and my money.
Turning the patient onto a medication regiment has no bearing on the physician (besides the kick back from the pharma cos) or hospital (Unless they use the pharmacy at the hospital) besides if the patients stays continued medication is no guarantee on them returning to the hospital for anything else.
Why would I want transparency... To cover my ass, unless I keep on screwing up is a good thing. Sure it can nail you to the wall if you screw up but if the evidence is out in the open and you can show you followed that evidence you should be in the clear. Although with they juries want to give out cash weather it is transparent or not is probably not gonna matter.
Besides if your hospital doesn't provide results I'll to one that can.
