Healthcare is changing rapidly, no question there.  But we the consumers, myself a practitioner, and others who are involved in any aspect of healthcare; we are all worried about what is coming down the pike.  One year, your insurance is your best friend, next year, it is taking you to the bank.  While the government seems to have answers about healthcare and started to demand people have insurance, is that the answer?  What are the problems:  access, money, payments from third party, what should be paid for or not, who should be taken care of and how will this game of dice play out in the next few years?

Steven Jacob, author of HealthCare in 2020:  Where uncertain reform, bad habits, too few Doctors and skyrocketing costs are taking us  and his other book So Long, Marcus Welby, M.D.:  How Today's health care is suffocating independent Physicians - and how some changed to thrive will be with us to share his work about all these topics.  Everyone seems to have different view on the problems and can offer up solutions but if you notice, it is generally in relationship to who it benefits.  Physicians think one way, payors another and patients another.  Can they ever come together and heal the landscape called HealthCare?  

Today, we are continuing the conversation to see what sense we can make of it, funny though, we may talk about it and guess what, in a year or so, we might have another conversation with government changes.
