First, good doctors have bad outcomes from time to time and as humans (we all are guilty of this) make mistakes too.
Secondly, bad doctors have good outcomes from time to time. The point here is that bad outcomes do not always equal bad doctors. So to continually punish both the good and the bad docs based solely off of outcomes would only serve to punish ourselves as these increased bad-outcome costs would only be absorbed by the malpractic carriers, leading to increased premiums for us and ultimately increased medical costs for all (no O****care does not fix this).
But lastly, look at the fine print of the paper work you sign with your doc. Outcome is NOT guaranteed nor is payment forgiven if you are not improved or are worsened! And there is this silly thing called "informed consent"
And would you really want health care TODAY as administered in China 2000 years ago (although this is now kind of where we are headed)???....res ipsa loquitur....
