Clearly many of you have been involved in some way with the health care system in recent years. Some of you live outside the United States of America.
I am not so arrogant that I feel that I can change the health care system in the United States. I do, however, serve on some committees which are trying to address those issues.
This is by no means a survey; this would not be scientifically a valid study. However I value the opinions of Gather friends including those with whom I may disagree on some political and social issues.
I am inviting anyone on Gather to share their opinions, experiences, stories regarding themselves or their loved ones in relation to the health care system. Feel free to comment on personal experiences with a physician, a clinic, a hospital, an insurance carrier, a government agency. I’m open to hearing favorable experiences as well as the others. Feel free to tell me what you don’t want to lose if there is a change in the health care system in the US as well as what you feel must be changed.
Feel free to send me private messages or to comment here as you see fit. I will try to take every bit of feedback into consideration in my meager roles toward impacting the direction of healthcare in the USA. Experiences in other countries and cultures are also welcome.
