How does central planning decay healthcare?

Quality doctors are being pushed back in the healthcare industry and replaced with administrators. The system is trying to produce doctors that work for the corporate hospitals treating their patients like healthcare runs on a conveyor belt. This is a pipeline of foreign trade medical students that can’t even speak english and political correctness supersedes quality and sometimes ability to care. 

How does central planning decay healthcare? In this new era of value based medicine it’s not about the quality but only depends on the patient feeling they have receive good care because 30% of the hospitals compensation depends on questionnaires. Its no longer about outcome but the perception of outcome. In the system like this, we all can imagine the abuses that will happen.

One of the most overlooked things in this new system is common sense. Because there are outside agencies deciding on how many specialists there can be, how much visits and procedures will cost; they are creating manipulations in the system that costs the doctors money. When the doctors get overlooked like this the quality of your healthcare goes down and even forces some doctors out of the medical field altogether.  

Dr George talks about options to help everyone navigate the oncoming centrally planned healthcare system that brings down your quality care,visit Patient Advocate Partners of America. It’s time to take the power back from the government.
