1. i guess it depends what the goal is. because we are now 'customers' instead of paitients
it is obvious that the goal is to make money. that is what I have figured from the cost of pharmaceuticals and the government refusing to and even making it so they can't negotiate for medications. if you go into the hospital as your main source of medical care, then the odds are you are getting fast tracked out of there. in fact, i would say that the system is set up to pretty much do that to almost everyone who isn't rich or in congress. in and out like a mcdonald's drive up window. so what if your order is wrong.... they have it set up so it's harder to go in and complain or you won't even notice before you get home and by then you aren't coming back. then they can charge you inflated prices and how many are going to fight it?
