re: Healthcare Reform Too Focused On Doctors: Telemedicine Pioneer
I agree with some of what Sanders says, but would have to add that healthcare reform still needs to focus on physicians as they are the principle users of the systems and are the direct lines of communication with patients. I do agree that the focus on patientsG«÷ needs to be greater but improved healthcare hasn't been sufficient enough of an incentive in the past and probably still wonG«÷t be. Take a patient that smokes or eats junk food regularly, even though they know full well the dangers their actions have towards their health, they are still reluctant to change.
