From Sharon Begley on Twitter

I follow science writer Sharon Begley on twitter and picked up references to a couple of recent articles on health care.  

Tuesday’s USA Today carried a long article:  “DoctorsPerform Thousands of Unnecessary Surgeries” by Peter Eisler and Barbara Hansen.  One man had his dreams of a career in professional baseball and the military shattered after he had a pacemaker installed.  It turned out that all he really needed was blood pressure medication.

On the website Jason Shafrin interviews author and economics professor  Douglas Hough about his recent book on irrational behavior of patients, providers, and stakeholders.
