Assume a Miracle: A perfect solution for the Cost & Access aspect of HC has been found! Is this still a HC system you want to leave for your children and grandchildren? NO!
HC Delivery System is where HC begins and:
Every state HC delivery system is unorganized and dysfunctional, and furthermore, NO state governor or state legislature has a clue. No state can identify one person who can describe that state’s HC system in detail, name every component, and describe how each component functions, individually and in unison with other HC components (essence of a system).
There is nothing systematic about our nation’s HC delivery system, and no state is seeking answers as to why their system is unorganized and dysfunctional.
ObamaCare, RomneyCare, and all other measures offered to try to improve the Cost & Access financial burdens of how to pay for HC after-the-fact (exceedingly important) have dominated almost every consideration regarding our nation’s highly flawed HC system.
I speak to:
- Why our HC delivery system is unorganized and dysfunctional.
- Why states are where improving the HC delivery system must begin.
- How any state can begin to completely reorganize their HC system.
- Why current efforts to improve the quality of HC are misdirected.
The next time you or a loved one goes for emergency medical care ask yourself two questions:
My first concern is a) medical care or b) how to pay for this later?
Will I fall through one of the many cracks in my state’s HC system?
HC Delivery System must become as important a consideration for making our HC system better as is the Cost & Access aspect of that system. Also, those two HC aspects must be considered in isolation one from the other. Any consideration for C&A HC change in discussions regarding the Delivery System will instantly contaminate and confuse those Delivery System considerations.
Meaningful HC Delivery System change must begin at the states’ HC system.
A better HC system requires both aspects of HC to be confronted and changed.
