The articles were very similar because they both had tons of information. They articles both had a lot of the same information due to the protection on medical records. It is illegal for hospitals to report medical records, but the PIAA was able to release medical records while hiding the identity of the patients. The PIAA is a very popular source to get medical information, due to how rare it is. The articles both had a great number of statistics and charts. They differ because the topics were different. The first article was about preventing the claims for the future, and the second was what was the result of medical claims. While both articles had a number of charts, they were very much different. Aside from the actual data on the chart; the types of charts were different. The first article used more number charts, almost like an excel program, while the second article used bar graphs and pie charts. Both of the articles were very useful and provided different information I needed to do this project.

In conclusion the articles had large amounts of ethos, pathos and logos. The ethos in the articles were groups mentioned in the articles that were highly knowledgeable and are credited with great respect. The pathos in the articles personified the claims. Before they used ethos I did not think of these claims as people, but instead as numbers. The articles used numbers to display logos. Those numbers used by the authors, made the information seem highly reliable and proved a point. The articles differed form each other because they had different themes, but they were similar in their information. Both articles used PIAA to get statistics on medical claims. The articles have excellent points and great graphs to allow one to visually interpret the information given. The articles provide the three most common reasons why there is malpractice in the medical field today. The first reason is patients believe in unrealistic results. The second reason is patients do not understand the treatment process. The third reason is diagnosis error. These situations can all be avoided but the patient and doctor must be responsible.
