[<undef>,quote] Healthcare standards

Many Russian columnists cite the official 15 minutes per patient quote that Russian state-controlled clinics use ridiculously small. Well, I just came across the following fragment in a funny article on the Fast Company site:

The hospital in which [the friend's] mom's doctor practices has instituted strict new productivity targets to reduce costs. He's allowed only 8.8 minutes with each patient. So there's no time to explain new drugs. No, that would be another item to be researched on the Internet.

The article itself is quite interesting and its topic is far beyond the mere cost-cutting trends in US hospitals.
