A Note on Health Care Reform

I agree that effectiveness and efficiency in medical records would be one of the goals of health care reform. It has nothing to do with single payer, correct me if I am wrong, it is a provider issue. If we had a United Healthcare Provider Community (ideally worldwide), we would be all that much closer to realizing true health care reform (a more perfect union, if you will). However, the provider community MUST come to grips with over-treatment, over-utilization, and the resulting costs that are contributing to our collective and individual bankruptcies, and reduced quality of lives that result from such.

The provider community and their associated administrators need to start thinking about how they can transition to a more workable health care system. That's the beauty of an Equity Union and my Plan where Equity can be put into trust and assets and employees methodically transitioned into to useful alternative roles.
