Pradeep my friend -- they are not the same thing. Who says the words matters. The more powerful the person -- the more responsibility they have to be measured in their words. If Obama or another Dem leader did stuff like this, I'd agree with you. This is different.

Anup -- important point -- but it assumes that these non-profit hospitals are only in the business of maximizing their revenues or profits. If they are in business to maximize community benefit (thus securing tax exemption), then may be quality should be a part of their pay.

Build useful diagnostic decision support tools, which suggested diagnoses and scanned for outliers or "patients like this had disease X" or "patients like this were treated this way." Of course, improve culture, teamwork, and all that stuff too...
