On the Commodification of Medicine.
Moynihan, Daniel Patrick
Academic Medicine, v73 n5 p453-59 May 1998
Reviews trends causing health care to be treated as a commodity, bought and sold in a market where price determines outcomes, and service orientation of health care is threatened. This environment places new pressures on medical schools and teaching hospitals; the trend will continue because threats to academic medicine's institutions have not become part of the nation's political agenda.
