Dr. William B. Jordan (@npalive) presents My Doctor Would Never Do That:

Large databases of physician behavior have been made available by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and other sources to reveal practice patterns in delivering services and prescribing medications. Critics complain that the data provides an incomplete picture, while supporters point to the illumination of outliers who are driving high costs of care, with uncertain benefit or potential harm.
