David Goldhill make's 3 great points that I've not read elsewhere.
- That emergency care is not so expensive to deliver. He says if you don't believe it, go to an emergency room and look around.
- The fact that on an annual basis 90% of healthcare is purchased by 10% of people is not unlike many other products. Like homes, refrigerators, cars etc.
- One out of five 90 year olds will have surgery on the year of their death, when no surgery is recommended for someone over 90 years old.
I believe he has said some wrong things also.
Here is an idea that fits with his view of healthcare.
And here is the one guy trying to explain why we put up with the craziness in medical care.
