Patient-sharing networks reveal doctor similarities
from Modern Medicine
If you share patients with your colleagues, chances are you have practice and personal styles in common, too. So say researchers who conducted a study to learn more about doctor networks. "It has long been known that physician behavior varies across geographic areas, yet our understanding of the factors that contribute to these geographic differences is incomplete," say Bruce E. Landon, M.D., MBA, and colleagues at Harvard University who conducted the study. Their findings indicate that healthcare varies by location because of informal information-sharing networks.
