If I had the POWER to CHANGE the healthcare institution. It would be something like....
FACE TO FACE CALL
*able to contact through video chat
*telling where hurts and the symptoms you're having.
*tells you whether or not it is necessary to go to hospital
*if not, just gives prescription.
Seriously Ill??
*Go into the hospital and get report for the video chat.
*Then lead to a check-up room.
Wristbands as a recorder
Universal Health Care
PERFECTION :)
mostly made up of private or government-owned hospitals
approximately 40 million Americans do not have access to good medical help

1.
1. None of the prices are consistent!!!!!

A Connecticut woman who went to the hospital
for mysterious chest pain spent $21,000 ($1,000 for ambulance ride, $3,000 for doctors, $17,000 for a typical 3 hour hospital stay)!!!Later it turns out to be a heart burn.
2. Not everyone is able to afford medical attention.

A Connecticut woman who went to the hospital for mysterious chest pain spent $21,000 -- $1,000 for ambulance ride, $3,000 for doctors, $17,000 for a typical 3 hour hospital stay!!!

3. Some people are not able to buy their prescription or medicine.



Solution
- Transnational Groups
- Have 1-3 big hospital companies
- Spread out like McDonald's



1. None of the prices are consistent
Why?
With one to three big companies
most of the costs of medical care will be the same.
Solution
Like in France, England and Cuba
I think that Universal Health Care is required for America's unsatisfying health care.
2. Not everyone is able to afford medical attention
Why?
As said before, more than 40% of the people are not able to afford medical help.
That's where "trusty" insurance companies in and ruins most of the people's lives.
With Universal Health Care a lot of people will be able to afford medical attention.
Instead of being kicked out to the streets.
3. Some people are not able to buy their prescription or medicine.
Why?
With Universal Health Care, not only could all the people receive medical attention, but also medicine at a low price.
(Now they can actually heal)!!!
In Maryland, they charge $3,000-$4,500 less than average for vaginal births.
In New Jersey, $10,000-$13,000 above the average cost across all the states.
Each patient will receive a wristband that will state the individual's illness and needed medication so when going to a pharmacy they'll just receive the right of amount of product they need.
Medical Attention will be free to those in need
Medicine will be cheap for everyone.
