Explanation:
Hola sls,
Por favor lea lo siguiente, tal vez le ayude a encontrar una definición mejor para este término:

"Traditional medical insurance gives neither physicians nor their patients an incentive to think about costs; the result can be what Alain Enthoven, a health care reform advocate, calls "flat of the curve medicine", in which doctors order any procedure that might possibly be of medical value, no matter how expensive."

Buena suerte y saludos del Oso ¶:^)
