The Supreme Court has rendered its opinionand now we’re going to have around 30 million more consumers entering a health care system that is already broken… and broke.
What should be done? In a word: outcomes.
How many businesses do you know that get paid regardless of the level of service or results that they deliver? Would you pay someone after mowing your lawn even if the grass wasn’t actually cut?
Unfortunately, this characterizes our current health care system in the United States.
We have been operating in a fee-for-service environment for years and the costs have spiraled out of control. There is no accountability in the system. Caregivers have an incentive to gen up more treatments, examinations, admissions and diagnoses so they can bill for more services and earn larger fees. Not every caregiver operates this way, but enough do that their behavior creates massive debt for our country. No one, it seems, is held accountable for the outcomes that are, or are not, delivered. Why should health care be different than any other industry or business that exists to reach end goals before the players are rewarded?
At Pure HealthyBack, we’re tackling back and neck pain. It’s one of the most common reasons for missed work and trips to the doctor’s office — and extremely costly to our system.
