How doctors get paid in China

One of the things that surprised me the most when I was living in China was how some doctors decide get paid.
In most western countries, doctors do their work and at the end of the month they get paid. However, in China some doctors get paid if patients get better. That means that if patients don’t recover they don’t get paid.
Most industries actually could work like that. If you don’t deliver the promise you make, you don’t get paid.
Where does this leave us? There are two groups of people. The ones who complain, because they can’t make a living—and the happy ones, who actually do things right.
Interestingly, people who want to make a difference, not only end up in the happy group, but make more money too.
