Dear SIDM List-Serve Colleagues,

There is a (typically) excellent essay by Dr. Atul Gawande in the current issue of the New Yorker.  He addresses the complex drivers of over-utilization of diagnostic testing and the associated perils of over-diagnosis in medicine.  In doing so I think that Gawande gets to the very essence of the “value proposition” underlying current health care reform efforts –  which of course has direct relevance to us for the improvement of diagnosis.  His words echo a number of the topics addressed at our most recent meeting in Atlanta.

The article’s source URL, from the New Yorker magazine website, is:

Hope you enjoy this article and find it useful.

All the best,

Michael
