question for you. It is simple and can be answered with a simple YES or NO. Are you willing to deny a patient's freedom to choose the level of care he or she desires and is willing to pay for it, and are you willing to deny a person who happens to be a health care provider the freedom to work for who he chooses? I'd like an answer.
No problem with the first of your one "question". Chose what you want (Jehovah Witness, Church of Scientology, the “Moonies”) as these folks all ready do.
Work for who ever you want to. I don’t care! In our “free market” health care I do that
now. Gosh I did not see in the health bill where you would become a “Federal employee”!
Your statement about Germany is time dependent: I studied them in 1985-7. What you stated about your one experience is anecdotal.
At this time there is a business in health care that is evolving: MDVIP. Interesting that some physicians are jumping to it but it is again dependent up on if you care afford the price!
I take great exception to your comment about suing for poor outcomes: We do such a poor job of policing ourselves that we are a “peers covering our own butts system”
Also aren’t we crying for tort reforms?
I am done. You won’t change and I don’t expect in my lifetime for health care to not be a political football what ever I do.
Just so you know I did develop & manage a preventive dental clinic, wellness & prevention center, an on demand mammography center and an industrial rehab process for a fortune 500 company.
Healthy employees and employees with chronic disease that is well manage, have a higher cost benefit ratio based on health care costs, productivity, absenteeism and turnover when compared to company program costs.
I have the published data to prove it. Health care cost was not the biggest contributor to that cost benefit. Just perhaps if we spend $ to keep our citizen health and to better manage those with chronic disease our financial outcome might improve!
