My Interview on The Health Care Blog

If for some reason you haven’t gotten enough of me on Wachter’s World, I just did a long, fun interview with Matthew Holt on the always-interesting THCB. We cover patient safety, the future of IT, the demise of primary care, Death Panels, and more.

I began the interview an optimist and finished it a pessimist, as I reflected on the ongoing debate over healthcare reform.

 If you have a little time (it’s about 35 minutes), check it out here!

    While there is much to be accomplished, I agree that the progress over the last 10 years is impressive. I really like the thought that information systems should function more like a social media network, like Facebook, rather than a paper system.

    The recent debate around how to best control health insurance and the cost, has pushed the issue of prevention to the front. Why is prevention so important? Everyone is complaining about the cost but the cost would not be as high if everyone took the time to properly take care of themselves. I know prevention is only a part of it but it is an important part of health. It is important because the average person is overweight and running up the medial cost. If you look at the generations before us they were in much better shape and took care of themselves. Someone recommended that I go to Community Health Network for more insight and get my doctors point of view on the matter. I was happy I did because it gave me a balance in my argument.
