This is precisely what is going on in health care…

I have been trying to figure out a way to say it for some time now, then here comes Seth Godin with a Blog Post that hits the nail on the head. All the demands of the third party (insurance) and “oversight” side of health care amount to using a photon microscope when 20/20 from 20 feet would do just fine.

When meeting the demands of  “medical necessity” results in doctors (and patients) spending all the their encounter time with their nose in the file (or a computer screen), and less and less time with hands on backs (in my case), it doesn’t serve the needs of the patient. If patients can’t get the results that they are here to get, what good is being deemed “medically necessary”? You get paid but you don’t get anything meaningful done! The system is broken in many ways, but here the insurance industry is completely destroying the integrity of the only part of the network that really matters: the patient getting health care.
