As Brody and Bonham point out, we share much common ground. We agree that our profession's tolerance of some colleagues' cupidity under fee-for-service opened that way for today's corporate invasion; that increased teamwork can improve care; that many managers are fine human beings; and that national health insurance is the best way forward. But we're skeptical that managed care is a step in that direction, or that profit-driven incentives are likely to do more good than harm.
