Evidence For Impending Healthcare System Failure

Posted Oct 17 2012 11:05am

The following are the links that is the evidence for the impending failure of the healthcare system in its present form and in the form that Obamacare is adopting.

Obamacare is piling on more regulations and restrictions to the present healthcare system. The present system is a failed system.The regulation will be impossible to comply with and impossible to enforce. They will create more opportunity for secondary stakeholder to extract more funds from monies needed for direct patient care creating a greater decrease in access to care for all .

The links follow the slides I presented in my last blog. Those links could not be opened because they were jpegs.

My hope is the links serve as an excellent reference to Repair The Healthcare System presently or when it collapses under it unsubstainable costs and the present system's inability to be executed.

The Etiology of Accelerated Collapse



Physician/ Patient Barriers to the Physicians/Patient Relationship



The Physician/Patient Relationship.

  The physician/patient relationship .

  The Magic  of the Patient Physician Relationship  

  Patient and Physician responsibility contract

 Patient should be the leader of the team

 Barriers for physicians in the Physician/Patient Relationship


1. Tort Reform/Defensive Medicine.

2. Restriction of Physicians Clinical Judgment .

3 . Medicine is a calling not a business  

  4.   Constant lowering physicians’ reimbursement .

 5. Physicians are driven to decrease time spent with patients .

6. Government rations care through panel of experts

7 . Physician’s treatments are driven by government regulations .

8. The traditional media undermining physician credibility

9 . Government is attempting to commoditize medical treatment .


Patient Barriers To the Patient/Physicians Relationship

3. Patients do not have to be responsible for their treatment because they

4.   Education about chronic disease must be extension of physician’s care  

5.   Internet can undermine the Physician/Patient relationship ..

6. Method of choosing a physician is random and must be made clearer .

7. Portability of information about previous treatment is difficult .

8. Patient must be responsible and in control of their medical record.

9. Patient must endure poor communication by their physician.

10 . Government and the healthcare insurance industry limit choice with

network restrictions .

11. Patients should be responsible for their treatment Management

America's healthcare system is at a critical turn in 2012.

Obamacare must be repeal.

Effective healthcare reform is essential. Both the primary and secondary stakeholders have abused a system. A system that is punitive.

Consumers must drive the system by being responsible to themselve and their healthcare dollars.

Obamacare is building a system of government dependency by all stakeholders (patients,physicians,hospital and healthcare insurance companies).

The healthcare system should be developed to create innovation and competions among stakeholders for the benefit of consumers and their indepent choice.

The government's inefficiency will create a healthcare system destined to doom at the expense of all of us taxpayers.

The opinions expressed in the blog “Repairing The Healthcare System” are, mine and mine alone
