Evidence For Impending Healthcare System Failure
Stanley Feld M.D.,FACP,MACE
The following are the links that is the evidence for the impending failure of the healthcare system in its present form and in the form that Obamacare is adopting.
Obamacare is piling on more regulations and restrictions to the present healthcare system. The present system is a failed system.The regulation will be impossible to comply with and impossible to enforce. They will create more opportunity for secondary stakeholder to extract more funds from monies needed for direct patient care creating a greater decrease in access to care for all .
The links follow the slides I presented in my last blog. Those links could not be opened because they were jpegs.
My hope is the links serve as an excellent reference to Repair The Healthcare System presently or when it collapses under it unsubstainable costs and the present system's inability to be executed.

The other major slide in the last blog was the barriers to the
Physician/Patient Relationship. This relationship is critical to the
theraputic index. It is almost destroyed and will be totally dstroyed in
Obamacare. Both physicians and patients will become commodities in a
bureaucratic healthcare system. Patients will not win.

America's healthcare system is at a critical turn in 2012.
Obamacare must be repeal.
Effective healthcare reform is essential. Both the primary and secondary stakeholders have abused a system. A system that is punitive.
Consumers must drive the system by being responsible to themselve and their healthcare dollars.
Obamacare is building a system of government dependency by all stakeholders (patients,physicians,hospital and healthcare insurance companies).
The healthcare system should be developed to create innovation and competions among stakeholders for the benefit of consumers and their indepent choice.
The government's inefficiency will create a healthcare system destined to doom at the expense of all of us taxpayers.
