ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the need for doctors, patients and policy makers to address the problems associated with the implications of practice variation due to its implications for the health and wealth of nations. The implications of practice variation are reflected in the fact that the U.S. spends 17 percent of its gross domestic product on health care, but still fails to produce better health. The article also discusses practice variation and the complexity of medical decisions, as well as practice variation and the effect of regional supply.
