Michigan Study Finds U.S. Physicians Feel Responsibility to Help Make Healthcare Leaner

Most U.S. physicians feel a responsibility to help make healthcare leaner by containing health costs, but many are less enthusiastic about cost-reducing strategies that involve changes in payment models, according to a new study from the Mayo Clinic and University of Michigan.

Results appear in the Journal of the American Medical Association
