The other problem you run into the wall of secrecy on 
hospital/admin/risk management, state medical board and NPDB stuff. Open 
the doors on that and spending would go down. We'd know more what errors 
to tackle, who are the physicians who need retraining/education, and get 
rid of layers of admin because doctors don't need 5 layers of admin and 
lawyers to fix things since I've yet to figure out how most contribute 
to my health.

It also goes to say that the hardworking docs should get a pat on the 
back because people would see when they were unjustly accused nor would 
they be subjected to physician profession hostility as much (because 
with the publicity you'll get rid of bad apples without retaliation on 
the part of doctor to doctor).
