Medical economics and morality: the conflict of canons.

Abstract

The more the economics of cost containment becomes an ideology, taking on a moral tone, the more it conflicts with the traditional medical morality. Looking at the canons of "good" economics in health care and at the canons of "good" medicine and examining the potential conflicts may point to methods of equilibrating their opposing tendencies.
