ABSTRACT
An interview with physician Pamela Hartzband is presented. She explains the reason for writing a column in the "New England Journal of Medicine" about the commoditization of health care. She says that the U.S. medical profession has come under increasing scrutiny regarding expenses because health care is such an enormous part of national expenditures. According to her, as the medical home model is introduced, it is important to think about behavioral economics and how that impacts what is being developed.
