Re: World Food Prize starts today: What's it mean to you?

The fact that we can't seem to fit our health insurance into a business model is a pretty good description of our problem.

 

I always wonder how our desire to keep looking til we find a doctor who tells us what we want to here, is going to fit into socialized medicine.:)

Re: World Food Prize starts today: What's it mean to you?

The keystone element of ACA, as I understand it, is the Electronic Medical Record. The EMR, and broader access to what it says about you and your health, is supposed to eliminate duplication on tests and studies like Xrays and MRI.

If someone " doctor shops", they will at least not be dealing with someone as in the dark as in decades past.

A lot of money is wasted paying medical prifessionals to essentially pay attention to lonely people. More is squandered by writing prescriptions way too often. There are so many people taking so many drugs, their chart reads " polypharmacy" now.

Re: World Food Prize starts today: What's it mean to you?

Probably the most destructive part of the American lifestyle is the idea that in the area of health care, money is no object.

And the idea that adding a few months of difficult struggle to a life is success at any price.

 

Changing that attitude is not going to happen easily.  But Socialized medicine is not going to work until we do.

Fortunately, nursing does present many options for utilizing her skillset. If she can afford to retire instead, all the better for her.
