Scarcity & Abundance in Our Healthcare System

doctor at bedside

In our healthcare system today, the physician’s time is essentially rationed.  This happens in two way -healthcare provider organizations strictly limit the amount of time a physician can spend with any one patient. And insurance restrict access to physicians (and the procedures they might perform) through plan rules and processes.  This is the inevitable result of an outdated healthcare model and an increasing volume of patients trying to gain access to a pool of physicians that is growing a very modest rate.  In this podcast, we explore the ways that the healthcare system is adjusting to this reality and the consequences for patients and the quality of care they receive.
