It’s an Independence-day Grand Rounds at Rangel, MD:
Welcome to my second go ’round as host for Grand Rounds of the Medical Blogosphere! I know it’s not really proper to discuss a person’s problems on their birthday but in this forum I thought that we should take the opportunity to focus on the problems with the US health care system and ponder any solutions.
First off, my editor’s choice goes to Dr. Henochowicz who appears to have the perfect top 5 list of things that need to be addressed. 1). Enact compulsory health insurance. 2). Promote primary care. 3). Fund the National Health Information Network. 4). Encourage consumerism. 5). Encourage physician involvement and leadership in health care policy. ABSOLUTELY! Every physician should have this “to do” list in his/her pocket.
Fixing the medical liability system…
Yet another excellent Grand Rounds.
Oh, and I’d like to second the above 5 recommendations!
