Something I don't think we've kicked around:

what would influence doctors to go a little further for the right dx? I
have a lot of comments from the doctors side, but is it money that
entices or a pat on the back? I tried pats on teh back with some other
doctors and it backfired.

What happens with a complex/complicated patient?

In an ideal world, care would be both patient centered AND knowledge-based.  These goals come into conflict a lot these days - many physicians don't take the time to take advantage of decision support resources, and some believe that their patients will perceive them negatively for doing so.
