I missed this but last week my favorite writer on the entire Internet, Billmon at the Whiskey Bar, wrote about health care. 99% of his posts are about foreign policy, from an extremely cynical point of view. But this time he looked at the capital problems facing hospitals and his extrapolating guess is that to maintain the profitability of hospitals we will soon be allowing emergency rooms to turf people out to die in the streets. His piece on the future of EMTALA (not that he uses the term, but he clearly understands it) is called Unhealthy Returns.
