Third Way For Healthcare – Germany

Posted in Politics by Arasmus on April 13, 2008

In my opinion access to health care is a human right. In implementing a health care system, other than the one that would naturally occur in the absence of government regulation, I think the challenging goal is to (1) design the system in such a way so as to prevent waste and ensure that the most people receive the best care and (2) preserve the incentives for innovation in the field of medical research so that the most people can receive the best care in the future. The German system provides an interesting model. This is an excerpt from a documentary, Sick Around The World, that starts this coming Tuesday on PBS.
