Why the U.S. HealthCare System Is So Bad The Atlantic

1. A lack of insurance coverage. A common talking point on the right is that health care and health insurance are not equivalent—that getting more people insured will not necessarily improve health outcomes.
2. Administrative inefficiency. “We waste a lot of money on administration,” Blumenthal said. According to the Commonwealth Fund’s most recent report, in the United States, “doctors and patients [report] wasting time on billing and insurance claims.
3. Underperforming primary care. “We have a very disorganized, fragmented, inefficient and under-resourced primary care system,” Blumenthal added. As I wrote at the time, in 2014 the Commonwealth Fund found that “many primary-care physicians struggle to receive relevant clinical information from specialists and hospitals, complicating efforts to provide seamless, coordinated care.”

10 Biggest Problems in Healthcare in 2021 [Possible Solutions]

2 hours ago Profitableventure.com Show details

Estimated Reading Time: 14 mins
1. An Unstable Federal Reimbursement Model. PROBLEM: One of the biggest problems in the healthcare industry today in the United States of America and perhaps in other countries of the world is an unstable federal reimbursement model amid an uncertain regulatory environment.
2. Awkward Incentive Model (How We Pay for Health Care Services) PROBLEM. In the United States of America and all other nations that operate similar policies, another major problem in the healthcare today is the awkward incentives model.
3. Double Customer Services Standard. PROBLEM. If you have ever been under any health insurance cover or under a health management organization and also as a private patient that is paying from your pocket, you would have observed that the customer services offered are usually different.
4. Lack of Transparency in Assigning Hospital. PROBLEM. Another notable problem in the healthcare industry that cuts across many countries of the world including the United States of America is the lack of transparency in assigning hospitals to customers under health insurance policy cover.
5. Lack of Transparency in Selecting Drugs and Medications Used in Hospitals. PROBLEM. Another major problem in the healthcare industry today is the lack of transparency when it comes to selecting the brand of drugs and medications that are to be issued to patients after prescription by the doctor.
6. Irregular Disaster Preparation Policy. PROBLEM. Irregular disaster preparation policy is yet another major problem in the healthcare industry. The fact that we don’t expect disaster to happen frequently does not mean that we should not be prepared for them.
7. The Pay Before Treatment Policy Should Be Reviewed. PROBLEM. Although this might not be a universal problem in the health care industry, but in some countries of the world, when you visit a hospital or medical facility, you are expected to at least deposit a reasonable amount before you treated or attended to even if it is a medical emergency.
8. Lack of Free Quality Healthcare to The Poor and Senior Citizens. PROBLEM. Another problem in the healthcare industry that is of major concern especially in third world countries is the lack of free quality healthcare to the poor and senior citizens who cannot afford to pay for quality treatment.
9. The Rise of Alternative Medical Treatment. PROBLEM. A major problem that is confronting the healthcare industry not just in the United States of America but all across the globe is the rise and no doubt the wide acceptance of alternative medical treatments.
10. Interference of Major Financiers and Policy Makers in Ground Breaking Research in the Healthcare Industry. PROBLEM. Lastly, one of the biggest problems in the healthcare industry today is the interference of major financiers and policy makers in ground breaking research in the healthcare industry.

1. Why does the cost of health insurance keep going up? Many people don’t realize that one of the biggest culprits causing health insurance rates to rise so quickly is the structure of our current health insurance environment. When it comes to health insurance options there really are only two: health maintenance organization insurance (HMO) and indemnity type of health insurance coverage. The latter is a type of policy very similar to what you have for your car, in that is is protection against financial loss in the event of some catastrophic circumstance in the future. HMO health insurance pays for the catastrophic costsand also all the routine costs such as regular doctor visits, vaccinations, and so forth. The HMO Act of 1973, which was the legislation that officially codified HMOs under federal law, essentially required insurance companies to provide comprehensive coverage to all patients regardless of need. Consider the fact that every time you go to your primary care physician f...

1. Health Expenditures: High and Growing. If it seems that we talk more than ever about healthcare, it is because health expenditures are high and growing fast.
2. The Market in Health Services. I have argued that healthcare is expensive and likely to get more so over time. Our next task is to ask how we can provide it to all in a way that is both efficient and fair.
3. Healthcare in the United States: Problems. I have already pointed out that the U.S. spends considerably more on healthcare than does any other country—we do not get a good return on our investment.
4. Cost Control, Competition, and Efficiency. Why is the U.S. not getting a good return for its money? Because a number of misguided policies undercut cost control, competition, and efficiency.
5. Healthcare in The United States: Current Reforms. Not surprisingly, the problems of the U.S. healthcare system have led to major reform—the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010.

The Five Biggest Problems In Health Care Today

8 hours ago Forbes.com Show details

1. Too Much Unnecessary Care. Overuse and unnecessary care accounts for anywhere from one-third to one-half of all health care costs, which equal hundreds of billions of dollars, in addition to the half-a-trillion per year experts attribute to lost productivity and disability.
2. Avoidable Harm to Patients. This is one of health care’s most common problems. The statistics are staggering. Here’s an example: one in four Medicare beneficiaries that are admitted to a hospital suffers some form of harm during their stay.
3. Billions of Dollars are Being Wasted. A report by the Institute of Medicine Health suggests a third or more of health costs are wasted. The cost of these unnecessary, harmful early elective deliveries was estimated in a study in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology to be nearly $1 billion per year.
4. Perverse Incentives in How We Pay for Care. Traditionally, health plans, Medicare and Medicaid pay providers for whatever services they deliver, regardless of whether the service truly benefits the patient.
5. Lack of Transparency. We have far more information available to us to compare and select a new car than we do to choose where to go for lifesaving health care.
