American Healthcare Improvement
Rarely in the history of our nation has there been an urgency to address problems facing the US health care system. Most of these problems are not new; they have been discussed for decades by politicians. Most of these problems stem from a highly-fragmented US healthcare system, which due to reluctance (the inability) to act on the part of our leaders, led to a slow deterioration of our healthcare.
Some of the most notable issues plaguing the US healthcare system include: its failure to properly treat chronic diseases,
disappointment to provide preventative coverage for low-income people, and the soaring cost of life-saving drugs and medical devices.
For too long, reliance on Obamacare to allocate health resources, to contain costs and to determine better healthcare for Americans has failed. The upshot is the US now spends more per capita on health services than any other country in the world, but lags behind many other countries on such health indicators as life expectancy and infant mortality.
There are also new problems facing the US healthcare system like decreasing life expectancy from opioid addiction, the rise of intractable infections from superbugs, and the threat of potential outbreaks of new or resurgent pathogens from ever-increasing global trade and travel.
