The Current State of Future of U.S. Health U.S. Health 2 Good evening ladies and gentlemen of the senate. Tonight I will be discussing the current state of our U.S. health care system. As anyone who lives and breathes in this country knows, we are facing colossal problems with our system of health care in this country. Far too many of the citizens of this nation cannot afford proper health care, and this is a travesty that should not be allowed to continue. Many Americans believe that we should have nationalized healthcare. I do not believe this to be a feasible option for us. The reasons I am against this are many. If nationalized, we would likely be forced to use cost cutting procedures to save taxpayers money. This would result in declining salaries for doctors and others in the health care field. This leads to less incentive for anyone to pursue medical related research and development. Also, there would be far fewer of our best and brightest that would pursue careers in the healthcare industry. Socialism doesnt work, not in health care nor any other aspect of society. If healthcare were free, people would be very unlikely to restrict their visits to doctors. They would also be far less likely to try and curb their expenditures on drugs. This would result in the skyrocketing of overall healthcare costs. Waiting time to see a doctor will increase exponentially. In Canada it takes twice as long to get surgery than it does in America. We cannot follow their lead. We dont want someone to walk into the emergency room with a life threatening emergency, and have to wait several hours for treatment. Long waiting periodswill cause unnecessary deaths. This is unacceptable. If Canadian medicine is superior to the more capitalistic U.S. Health 3 U.S. system, why do so many come to the U.S. for medical treatment each year Why is this not reciprocated Why dont U.S. citizens flood across the border to Canada for medical treatment Canadians come over here in droves, not wanting to wait six weeks for the government to grant them an appointment to get an MRI. Treating common chronic conditions (including coronary artery disease, diabetes, congestive heart failure, asthma, and depression) are
making it one of the best economies in the world. It utilizes a nationalized health care system that seeks to ameliorate the health care disparities that exist. This healthcare system called Unified Health System (UHS or SUS in Portuguese) has a complex network of public and private institutions. It provides health coverage covering 78.8% of the Brazilian population. By law, everyone has a right to treatment of a wide range of care from organ transplants and government own ‘people’s pharmacies’ to sexual…
disparities within the health care system.
b. Key Topics: Comparing and contrasting the access to health between different ethnic groups; evaluating the cost of health care; observing racial segregation within the health care system; and looking at the overall health care system for its employees along with patients.
c. Topic questions and sentences: What challenges do minorities face with access to health care? How does the cost of health care affect the cost of health care? How does socioeconomic…
Universal health care needs to be in place to provide for all citizens and give them all equal benefits. A nation wide health care system would accomplish many things like make healthcare affordable for everyone, create a national database that will make it easier for doctors to diagnose and treat patients, and for doctors to focus on healing patients rather than worrying about insurance. With now more than forty five million US residents without health care it is time that there should be a system…
Greece: Health Indices
For many years, Greeks have been actively seeking improvement and restructuring of the country’s health care system. Despite this, the World Health Organization (WHO) ranked the country as one of the best in the world, 14th place to be exact. This ranking topped both Germany ranking 25th, and the United Kingdom ranking 18th (World Health Organization, 2000). Not only does the country rank in the top twenty in terms of health, thanks to better living conditions over the…
Health Policy and Leadership
It seems that no matter where you are health care reform is a hot topic. In order to meet the needs of the people health care systems must continuously adapt and self-adjust to remain viable. The basic elements of a health care system include: patients, providers, and payers. Patients need insurance to have routine examinations, prevention screening, and guidance with critical or chronic illness. Health care providers can be…
