what we can learn from other health care systems?

*In Singapore, hospitals publish the cost of every treatment

*In Germany, people suffering from fatigue or back pain can get a three-week stay at a "wellness" retreat in the mountains – all paid for by health insurance.

*In Taiwan, people who go to the hospital swipe a card that gives doctors their basic medical information

*Germany's had a national healthcare system since 1883

*National health services save a heck of a lot of money and are much cheaper, like in Spain and Britain,"?????

*UK, Germany, France, New Zealand use sophisticated information systems?
While 99 percent of doctors in the Netherlands and 97 percent of doctors in New Zealand and Norway used electronic medical records (EMRs), only 46 percent of U.S. doctors reported EMR use.

*Americans take 10 percent fewer drugs than citizens in other countries — but pay 118 percent more per pill that they do take

*In France, the sicker you are, the more coverage you get. For people with one of 30 long-term and expensiv…

GOOD and BAD

What’s WRONG with American health care:

•Too many Americans are uninsured
•Too much of our health care dollar is spent elsewhere, not on health care
•Congress is not paying fairly for Medicare and Medicaid
•Too much insurance profit, hassle and abuse
•Lawsuit abuse drives up health care costs

What’s GOOD with American health care:

•Doctors work for you, the patient
•You, the patient, have a choice of doctors and hospitals
•Highest quality in the world
•Innovation and cures save and extend lives
•It’s not a government run system where you wait and wait

Tradition of America is true?????

If you fix the immigration then indirectly you are fixing Healthcare because, number of illegal immigrants using services and who have no means to pay that leads economic growth and financial flow sluggish. We are spending more on health care than any other nation but no quality and cost of healthcare for all not affordable.
65: Percentage of voters who believe that every American should have access to quality Healthcare
80: Percentage who oppose providing healthcare for illegal immigrants
Just in Texas, estimates illegal immigrants cost hospitals more than $1.3 billion a year.
No one can fix the economy without fixing immigration and healthcare together.
If tradition of America is true, then all immigrants can be justifying by the law.

chill out christians! Pres. Obama's Notre Dame speach

Full text of Pres Obama's speech at Notre Dame commencement.

So let's work together to reduce the number of women seeking abortions by reducing unintended pregnancies, and making adoption more available, and providing care and support for women who do carry their child to term. Let's honor the conscience of those who disagree with abortion, and draft a sensible conscience clause, and make sure that all of our health care policies are grounded in clear ethics and sound science, as well as respect for the equality of women."

Our health care system is still operating in the dark ages of paper records and handwritten scrawls
Excessive meritless lawsuits against neurosurgeons and ER physicians threaten access to emergency care:
As a result, some trauma centers must transfer Complex cases, are “downgraded” in the care they can pro-Vide, or are forced to close (June 14, 2004; American College of Emergency Physicians,)
One in seven obstetricians no longer delivers babies: because of fear of being sued, is driving America’s ob-gyns to stop delivering babies (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Medical Liability Survey, July 19, 2004).
Meritless lawsuits cost everyone 125,000 lawsuits currently in the system: On any given day, this is a conservative estimate of the number of active
Lawsuits against physicians—a number almost twice as large as the number of medical stu…

Manmohan Singh impact

Congress president Sonia Gandhi was quick to dispel any doubts about Dr. Manmohan Singh being the choice as the next Prime Minister. As soon as the extent of the Congress success became known, there was a clamour that Rahul Gandhi deserved to be Prime Minister. Before the trend caught on, it was firmly and unequivocably made clear that Dr. Singh remained the prime ministerial mascot

THE SPANISH FLU

Influenza A(H1N1)Normally Humans are the major Hosts of the influenza viruses, and severe respiratory disease is the primary manifestation of infection. Influenza A viruses closely related to those prevalent in humans. However, circulate among many mammalian and avian species. Some of these may undergo antigenic mutation or genetic recombination and emerge as new human epidemic strains.
Major breaks of Influenza A usually occur at 2-3 years intervals. Influenza B appears usually every 4 to 5 years. The Spanish flue killed nearly 20 million people in 1743, 1889-1890,1918-919.
