Health Care Outcomes

Angry Bear (both AB and Kash) has provided excellent economic data on the Health Care issue:

http://angrybear.blogspot.com/2005/04/health-care-in-us-and-world-part-i-how.html (AB)
http://angrybear.blogspot.com/2005/04/performance-of-us-health-care-system.html (Kash)
http://angrybear.blogspot.com/2005/04/health-care-in-us-and-world-part-ii.html (AB)

Beginning around 1980, the rate of health care spending in the US accelerated, both in absolute terms and relative to other nations. (AB)

Americans spend nearly twice as much as people in other developed countries spend on health care. Our closest competitor for health care costs is Switzerland, which still spends just 60% of what the US spends, per capita. And yet all of these countries achieve better health outcomes: longer lives, fewer dead babies and children, and more quality of life for their elderly. (Kash)

demographic factors do not explain any of the US's bad health statistics. (The US's low level of publicly provided health care does explain about one-third of the US's low life expectancy, however.) The conclusion is that there is something idiosyncratic about the US health care system that results in poor outcomes despite its enormous costs. The average American simply receives unambiguously worse health care while paying twice as much as citizens of the rest of the developed world. (Kash)

The reduced U.S. life expectancy and poor outcomes may be mislaid at Health Care's door. The pertinent data may reside in levels of artificial additives used in American Food products compared to other nations, the rigor of Enforcement of Environmental Standards, and the variable use of communal Health standards(control of Animal populations, disposal of Garbage and Junk, and Personal hygiene). Consider the MWTB issue: the fuel additive is known to contaminate Water supplies, yet the major Political issue is waiver for the Manufacturers of the Product.

The Issue of Health Care Cost should really be examined from the basis of Diagnostic procedures and repetition of Treatments utilized. High-cost Diagnostics are routinely used(every Patient a common Recipient) where only symtom-diagnosed Patients receive such discovery procedures in other nations. Sheer consumption levels of Drugs per Patient may be much higher in the United States than other nations, as American Doctors feel Patients will not understand non-Drug medical treatment, even for nonsensical ills. Real data collection on the Issue need be made (thanks Kash and AB). lgl

Hello Lawrance George Lux,

One of the sections in my article directory is Home & Family ... while looking for blogs on elderly care, I discovered " Health Care Outcomes ".

Most people believe the best content on the internet is created by bloggers ... original content, experiences and opinions. Nothing to sell and no hidden agendas!

As someone who appears to be interested in elderly care, I am sure you will find our Home & Family section to be interesting. I am continually searching for bloggers to submit articles and assist me to expand the directory to all our benefit. By contributing, you not only get the recognition of being an author, but also knowing your submission will be seen by many hundreds of internet surfers. The pride and satisfaction of seeing your article published in a prestige directory is hard to beat.

Not all of us are born with the talent to write to high standards of literacy ... as a consequence, a lot of bloggers don't try to have their articles published.

I like an informal style of writing that matches your personality and fits in with your article content. I welcome articles that are uniquely based on your personal knowledge, experiences and opinions. All I request is that your content does not contain vulgar language, incite hatred or generally offensive.

Without any commitments ... please pop over and browse my blog articles directory for yourself.

Kind Regards
Emily

I found your blog by mistake. Actually was looking for something else but I like yours.

My viral marketing campaign could help. It is a great viral marketing campaign tool.

Good afternoon ##NAME##, I find it very refreshing to occasionally find a post or topic such as yours with a unusual theme completely. My wife liked it too.

I must admit I tend to have a soft spot for sites related to article authors and /or sites that have a central theme around article authors type items. Probably the webmaster in me.

Once again, thank you ##NAME##, and I hope you don't mind if I visit again sometime.
