Trees Falling in the Woods

America’s medical technology development and use leads the world. We spend more on technology than any other country. That’s one of the reasons why our healthcare costs are higher. But it has not helped our outcomes. Uwe Reinhardt’s comments may explain:

“Reinhardt also discussed the challenge of what he referred to as the “widening income distribution in the U.S., which makes it ever harder for families in the bottom 30 percent to 40 percent of the nation’s income distribution to afford modern American health care, including the many wonders the members of AdvaMed invent and produce.” He further stressed that this income disparity argues the need for enactment of comprehensive health care reform, a position reflected in AdvaMed’s own health care reform plan.”
