Healthcare today is so complicated that patients need to understand two very different types of information to make wise decisions. The first is ‘how medicine works’. Your doctor is your advisor here. He/she knows you (hopefully) and knows the technical aspects of medicine – cellular physiology, anatomy, biochemistry, surgical protocols and all the rest – which she brings to bear on your case. Your doctor knows the newest tests and technologies, can discuss how treatments, therapies and medications work and how they may affect you. He/she diagnoses, prescribes, operates and refers you as necessary. The second is ‘how well medical care works’. This focuses on medical outcome information. Expertise in the ‘how well does it work’ field doesn’t require a medical degree. You just need to ask the right questions to help you decide.
