bullet point A Private Jet Is Waiting to Take You to Your Kidney Transplant
Article from The Atlantic.
bullet point Innovation in Health Care Leadership
Video roundtable from the New England Journal of Medicine.

Editor's note: Listening to the introduction, one cannot help but cringe when one considers nephrology's lack of financial transparency — as well as its continuing arrogance and paternalism — all of which remain unquestioned in U.S. dialysis care.

With so many nephrologists owning shares in their dialysis clinics, patients are rarely told that virtually no nephrologists would accept the dialysis treatment regimens offered by these clinics.

I believe such care should called "plantation medicine," a system dedicated to preserving separate standards of treatment for the owners/overseers and their enslaved patients.
