  1. Healthcare is a business in the US. Profit motives for hospitals, insurers, practices and doctors will persist until the country completely converts to a socialized system. The majority of the US will not accept a socialized system. Consequently, effort should be exerted toward making the private healthcare sector (and its business entities) more cost effective and responsible.
    Can the country get away from blame rhetoric and political jousting to instead put energy toward solving the healthcare system problems we face? At least Harvard is making an effort.

  2. And there it is: Healthcare conference at a Business School.
    Can any headline define the terminal state of healthcare any better, er, worse!?
    And this blog prints it like a banner announcement!!!!

  3. I don’t understand why providers are allowing large for-profit insurance companies to set the tone and shape the rules for healthcare reform. We do not need them raking 15-20% off the top for performing financing transactions. If we slay the fee-for-service beast which has fed providers for so long, we absolutely cannot afford to pay insurance companies so much for so little. Great to see that Ms. Braly is at Harvard running their show.
