An idea on cutting heath care fraud?

Question by lt: An idea on cutting heath care fraud?
I was reading an article about Mystery Shopper on Wikipedia.org when i came across this:
“In June 2008, the The American Medical Association’s Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs released a recommendation on the use of “secret shopper patients” in the Medical / Healthcare. The Recommendation: “Physicians have an ethical responsibility to engage in activities that contribute to continual improvements in patient care. One method for promoting such quality improvement is through the use of secret shopper “patients” who have been appropriately trained to provide feedback about physician performance in the clinical setting.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mystery_shopper

Shouldn’t Obama health-care reform “strategy” include this “secret shopper patients”? i figured if the government use this to fight fraud it can create lots of jobs while improving the quality of health-care provided by doctors and hospitals, and such. Well i’m definitely not the first one who has this idea and sure there will be more coming.
and i’m not trying to be a smart a$ $ so please don’t criticize

Such a system would be a good idea in part, but he is having enough trouble trying to get his reforms through as it is without using a snooping service!

I do not understand why so many Americans have fallen for lies about healthcare in the USA, abroad and also the planned reforms [1]. I mean, if the healthcare system in the USA is so good, why have no other nations taken it up? Could it be due to the following facts?
FACT – the USA spends more on healthcare PER PERSON than any other nation on the planet [2].
FACT – the US has higher death rates for kids under five than western European countries with universal health coverage [3].
Or if the US healthcare system is run so well, why not run the fire service like the healthcare system? [4]
Maybe that is because in the USA, insurance companies push up costs, buy politicians and refuse to pay claims that people pay for [5]. (Look up Wendell Potter on YouTube to hear more if the link below is too long.)
Obama wants to make insurance cheaper, stop insurance companies from refusing health coverage to those with pre-existing conditions, and make sure they pay out when they are meant to [6], a system similar to that which works in Taiwan [7]. He debated this before he was elected [8].
Is it right that a dead American four year old would have had a better chance of life if they were born in Canada, Cuba, Germany and so many other industrialised nations with universal healthcare?
If you think my arguments are wrong, e-mail me with proof. But if you can not, let Obama try to help America. If he fails, vote him out in 2012.

But back to your question, if he tried to expand this, then he would face even more problems trying to get his reforms through.
