As part of his vision for health care reform in the US, President Barack Obama has singled out Geisinger Health System in Pennsylvania as a model system that should be replicated across the U.S.
Unlike less-efficient hospitals, Geisinger pays doctors salaries and bonuses if patients are treated well and don't have to return for unnecessary follow-up care. The hospital also has completely electronic medical records that help reduce mistakes as well as other innovations.
