This document represents an integrated approach to solving the issues we have in our current HealthCare marketplace. The paper is divided into two sections: Problems & Solutions. The first section addresses the fundamental issues we still have from the historical healthcare system that have evolved over the past 200 years and that continue under the Affordable Care Act — as well as would continue under every piece of legislation that has been proposed from both sides since.
The paper was developed from the premise that before we can actually create a new healthcare system we need to recognize that the issues we are trying to solve are just symptoms of deeper, more fundamental problems in the non-integration of the prior mechanics of healthcare. The first section — Problems — identifies these fundamental problems, where they came from and how they impact healthcare today.
The second section — Solutions — addresses systemic fixes to solving the fundamental issues and provides a comprehensive view of how these solutions combine into an integrated and effective healthcare marketplace, with proper systemic checks and balances to assure full resource access, a national safety net, full coordination of care and benefits across all available sources, cost effective & efficient care, preservation of choice, brings appropriate free market forces and maintains accountability and responsibility while overall reducing cost to both Americans individually and America as a nation.
