ABSTRACT
This article looks at an executive order issued by U.S. President George W. Bush promoting quality and efficient healthcare. Bush's approach to health care is based on his concept of the "ownership society," in which the individual knows best how to spend his/her money and excessive litigation adds cost without adding value. The executive order directs federal agencies to perform several tasks: increase transparency in pricing and quality, encourage health care information technology standards, and provide options that promote quality and efficiency in healthcare.
