Mammograms are the gold standard for breast cancer detection and diagnosis yet they’re accuracy leaves a bit to be desired in normal breasted women. 40 percent of women have “Dense” breasts. Mammography effectiveness in dense-breasted women falls off sharply. Supplemental forms of detection like “Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound” significantly improve early detection. Yet for a variety of reasons, it is ignored or actively discouraged. We explain the problem and offer ways you can protect yourself.
It’s time to fix this healthcare quagmire. We have seen government’s idea, ObamaCare, and its not working. We have been told single payer or universal healthcare is a better way, but it’s demonstrably and prove-ably not. While we are in almost violent disagreement on the solution, most of us don’t even understand the problems. This includes a lot of government, and people in the industry. Yet, there is a better idea. In this episode, we outline this improved approach and set the stage to show you how we can all fix what our government simply can’t.

The healthcare diatribe has continued to get more vitriolic. Most just spout contrived talking points from either side driven into our heads for the past 9 years by a lazy media. Tom and Tim speak to the Annual ComplianceOnline Medical Device Summit & explain why THE GOVERNMENT CAN’T FIX OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM.
The Government can’t fix our healthcare system. In fact, in this speech we provide evidence that the government has never been able to do anything other than increase costs. We not only show the historical data we explain why even if they try the costs keep going up.
In this episode Tom discusses Dan Brown’s Book Inferno and how it may not be as much of a work of fiction as we think! Tom discusses the history of how we came to this position to help enlighten healthcare’s various myths.
Medicare and Medicaid costs are still out of control, no cost containment efforts have had any effect, and yet, we continue to expand the failing system. The ACA is passed. Government duplicity is fully exposed, Significant portions of the new ACA, can’t be implemented, and those which are cost much more than anticipated. It’s not just that we are extending coverage to those previously uncovered, a good idea with a bad implementation, we also continue to expand the scope of care beyond the what we need to stay alive and productive. The false healthcare economic structure becomes a systemic problem! The system is in collapse.
1980-2010 saw a time when the government changed our national economic system and fundamentally crippled our healthcare system along the way, and, no one seems to know this. Find out why!
Today we see the effects of runaway costs on our healthcare system. 1980-2010 was the time in America when systemic problems in our economy were coming home to roost. Our government came up with several fixes to try to avoid the pain of our past mistakes. Unfortunately, these economic changes included many policies and programs in healthcare that further integrated the healthcare issues into the problems of the economy.
Once again short-term thinking, and fixes, set up the US for a painful future. One we are now living each, and every, day.
