Do Physicians Underutilize Aides?
Brown, Douglas M.
Journal of Human Resources, v23 n3 p342-55 Sum 1988
This study found that groups are more productive than individuals and that physicians typically do not use aides efficiently. Except for physician assistants used in groups, nonnurse aides were overemployed. To produce more efficiently, physicians must use fewer secretarial, administrative, and technician hours.
