US: Health care

Dr. Eric Weiss of Stanford Medical School agrees with Daryń DeBell on the shortcomings of HMOs, which are being imitated around the world: "One of the great challenges for health care in America (and increasingly internationally as our model is being exported/adopted around the world) is that Dr. DeBell s God (market forces) is the principal driving force behind health care services in the U.S. Recent experiences with our very underfunded and overburdened Public Health sector illuminate the shortsightedness of using strict business rules in health care policy/delivery decision making".
