Health Care
From the Washington Post:
In Medicare's upside-down reimbursement system, hospitals and doctors who order unnecessary tests, provide poor care or even injure patients often receive higher payments than those who provide efficient, high-quality medicine.
Quantity of care is easier to measure than quality. There are some attempts underway to improve the system, but don't expect a lot of improvement over night.
