What health system does this describe?
One-stop shopping. Fully integrated hospital medical staff. Immediate access. No technology or quality gap. Competitive prices. A focus on service.
Unless physicians, surgeons, hospital administrators and health insurers get together to control costs, I fear that the health-care industry in the United States will rapidly continue down the same path as our indigenous manufacturing industries. If we do not take this issue seriously, if we keep repeating the old, inaccurate mantras about the lack of quality medical care abroad, we will lose our competitive advantage. Not only will fewer foreign patients come here for medical treatment, more of us will go elsewhere.
