A few years ago, there was an article written in the Los Angeles Times titled...
"Some heart patients do better when the cardiologist is away."
It was based on a study showing certain high-risk heart patients stand a better chance of survival if they go to a teaching hospital when all the cardiologists have left town.
Here's what the study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found:
"the survival rate for high-risk cardiac patients rose 10% when they were admitted to a major teaching hospital on days that a national cardiology meeting was in session."
Here's the thing...
That's a "tremendous reduction in mortality" better than most of the medical interventions that exist to treat these conditions."
Why is that?
