    Seeking equality of outcome without understanding the reasons disparity exists is likely to be a failure. The presence of disparity is a feature of society, not a bug. It is impossible to eliminate it.
    By all means apply research and science to the problem… but don’t assume the etiology just because disparity exists.
    It seems that attempts to revise the fee schedule (to better reflect time and skill) have been ongoing and largely, a failure.
    Lastly, the assumption that individual physician choice is not the prime driver, is typical in this victim-oppressor, critical-theory driven worldview that has seized society. Everywhere critical theory is applied, discord and conflict escalates.
    Attempts to equalize the outcome of income as (opposed to opportunity) is likely no different.
