Pound Wise and Penny Foolish
Healthcare reform seems to be on everyone’s mind. There is a definite need to push through the morass and work toward real healthcare reform. The “fluff” or “pie in the sky” statements may sound wonderful as they flash across our television screens, but they really mean nothing. It’s time for action, not just posing for the media.
One of the key issues in the healthcare reform debate is how to increase efficiencies and lower costs. The story I’m about to tell demonstrates how broken our system really is, and where money could be saved were it not for the short-sighted nature of these proposed reform efforts.
