    If you can come up with a plausible system where financial rewards are tied to *curing* patients then you have essentially the answer to most of these problems.

    As an eventual solution that might be workable, but as an interim solution, with medical science still trying to figure out what is going on, I think its unworkable. In any case thats one of the points of evidence based medicine - to promote what is acceptable and shown to work, and criticize what doesn't work. However EBM has major problems that are not being fixed currently.
