JAMA. 1995 Jan 25; 273(4): 330-335.
In this report, the Council [on Ethical and Judicial Affairs of the AMA] reiterates the physician's commitment to patient welfare first and updates its previous recommendations for physicians. This report discusses in greater detail the potential conflicts of interest faced by physicians practicing in the managed care environment. It then recommends measures to preserve the fundamental duty of physicians as patient advocates by reducing the risk of rationing and inappropriate financial incentives.
