    Just read and tweeted your “Operating on commission: How physician financial incentives aff ect surgery rates”.

    A very interesting frame of reference to present the incentive structure as a commission equivalent payment system. Candidly, never occurred to me as such.

    Indeed they do; saw it first hand. Well done piece.
