The secret prices, the corrupt financial schemes that influence clinical decisions, the impossibility of sharing your own records quickly and easily, the uncoordinated left-hand/right-hand redundancies and contradictions, the banker hours, the Stone Age technology (fax machines, really?), the electronic box-checking, the bouncers between you and the physician, the bureaucratic front-office staff, the inconsistent quality, the carrier pigeon system for sharing images, the predatory collections, the claims denials, the endless R&D cycle, the perverse incentives, and the cost, dear heavens, the cost.
Why can’t you get out of health care the same consumer focus you get in every other industry: real-time information and access, honest and competitive pricing, modern technology, and service delivery designed around consumer needs and demands.
