Here’s the Proven Model That Could Save Health Care and the US Economy / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: John_Mauldin

Millions of Americans are learning just how much their Obamacare premiums will be next year. But even if you have health coverage through your employer—or you’re 65+ and on Medicare, like me—you’re going to see severe inflation in the healthcare part of your budget.

But there’s a possible solution to the healthcare problem. The Cleveland Clinic has achieved remarkable results with its 100,000+ employees and dependents. They are making people healthier and reducing medical costs. And it’s a model that I think could work on a much broader scale.

Obamacare Is Draining Our Financial Reserves / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: John_Mauldin

Barack Obama will stop being president on January 20. He will leave behind the signature accomplishment of his eight years in office: Obamacare. Some see it is a disaster, and others see it as a triumph. But I think everybody agrees that there needs to be changes.

Yes, millions more people now have access to health insurance. That’s a very good thing—but access to health insurance is not the same as access to healthcare. And access to healthcare is not the same as access to affordable healthcare.

It’s Not Just Obamacare–Healthcare Systems Are Failing Everywhere / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: John_Mauldin

BY PATRICK COX : I’ve talked to many Canadian tourists who tell me that they’re having some medical procedure done while in the States. This is because the wait can be so long back home. As an uncouth American with borderline Tourette’s, I like to point out that their government health care doesn’t seem like such a utopian system after all. This typically provokes a defense of the Canada Health Act of 1984.

Is Healthcare the Silent Killer? / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Rodney_Johnson

I’ve never heard anyone brag about what they spend for a medical procedure. Healthcare isn’t like housing or transportation. People are proud to shell out big bucks for a big house, and many drivers can’t wait to show off their expensive set of wheels.

But when it comes to healthcare, we’re only smiling when we save money, not spend it, which makes the current trend so much more difficult.

The Right Lessons from Obamacare's Meltdown / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Paul_Rejczak

The decision of several major insurance companies to cut their losses and withdraw from the Obamacare exchanges, combined with the failure of 70 percent of Obamacare's health insurance "co-ops," will leave one in six Obamacare enrollees with only one health insurance option. If Obamacare continues on its current track, most of America may resemble Pinal County, Arizona, where no one can obtain private health insurance. Those lucky enough to obtain insurance will face ever-increasing premiums and a declining choice of providers.

Sernova, Diabetes and Haemophilia / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Richard_Mills

Paul Lacey was a researcher at Washington University when, in 1972, he cured some diabetic rats by transplanting the islet cells from healthy rats into diabetic ones.

Over the next two decades researchers made many attempts to apply the procedure to humans. Unfortunately no one was successful. By the early 1990’s most scientists had come to the conclusion that islet-cell transplantation was a lost cause.

Drs. James Shapiro, Jonathan Lakey and colleagues from the University of Alberta in Edmonton were successful at improving the treatment of a select group with severe diabetes through development of the Edmonton protocol in the late 1990s.

Medical Mousetraps / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Richard_Mills

In 1882, Ralph Waldo Emerson stated; “If a man has good corn or wood, or boards, or pigs, to sell, or can make better chairs or knives, crucibles or church organs, than anybody else, you will find a broad hard-beaten road to his house, though it be in the woods.”

In 1889, Emerson was credited with having said; “If a man can write a better book, preach a better sermon, or make a better mousetrap than his neighbor ...”

Today the common phrasing is of course a metaphor about the power of innovation -‘Build a better mousetrap, and the world will beat a path to your door.’

Interventional radiology has been described as the surgery of the new millennium by Stanford Healthcare, offering less invasive procedures, more precise placement of catheters and, often, fewer complications for patients and higher throughput for healthcare facilities. Robotics is making this new area of medicine possible. Cary G. Vance, CEO of Hansen Medical Inc., tells The Life Sciences Report about disruptive advances in interventional radiology and Hansen's own revolutionary robotic catheters.

Health Care…Is There a Better Way? / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Rodney_Johnson

It’s the end of October, which means Halloween is fast approaching. Then, once the calendar flips to November, we jump headlong into the holiday season.

It’s a time of celebration, travel, and gift-giving, but, in recent years, something else was added to the mix, and it fills people with dread.

It’s not more visits from in-laws (although, luckily, mine are fabulous!). It’s open enrollment for health insurance.

Transformational Technology - The “Age” Age / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: John_Mauldin

As I mentioned in last week’s letter, I traveled to San Francisco last Monday with my friend Patrick Cox, who writes our Transformational Technology Alert newsletter. We had dinner with Dr. Mike West of Biotime and then spent the next morning at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging. Pat and I decided we would jointly report on what we learned. He has already written his part, which was published last week. I am going to reproduce portions of that letter, which highlight the conversation with Brian Kennedy and his team at the Buck Institute, and then add my own thoughts about our conversation with Mike West the previous night.

Unhealthy, Not Wealthy, and Far from Wise, The Changing Healthcare World / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: John_Mauldin

“The first wealth is health.”– Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Man needs difficulties. They are necessary for health.” – Carl Jung

Decisions, decisions. Many Americans will have to make a big one in the next 60 days or so. How you decide will affect both your health and your wallet. Hospital management and doctors are seeing significant differences in the trends of patient care and are moving to adapt. Some of the changes they implement are going to create significant economic impacts on households and local communities.

What the Supreme Court Did for Healthcare Stocks / Companies / Healthcare Sector

MoneyMorning.com Michael E. Lewitt writes: U.S. markets were relatively quiet last week with the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX:.DJI) dropping 0.4% to 17,946.68, the S&P 500 (INDEXSP:.INX) also slipping 0.4% to 2101.49 and the NASDAQ Composite (INDEXNASDAQ:.IXIC) shedding 0.7% to 5080.51.

The real action was in China, where the Shanghai Composite Index collapsed by 7.4% on Friday and neared a 20% drop which would constitute bear market territory. Chinese stocks saw their biggest two-week plunge since December 1996.

The biggest profits will belong – like they always do – to those who make a “smart entry.”

Fortunately, this isn’t difficult. The entire sector is tailor-made for one of our favorite Total Wealth Tactics – the lowball order.

Healthcare Tops as 4Q14 Earnings Struggle / Companies / Healthcare Sector

George Leong writes: It’s that time again; another quarter has come to an end. The fourth-quarter earnings season numbers will officially start flooding in for the S&P 500 on Monday, with Alcoa Inc. (NYSE/AA) the first to report. However, the stock market is currently in a funk, beginning 2015 with weakening oil prices and continued concerns over the global economy. The problem: as the stock market searches for a reason to buy, several segments are suffering from the selling pressure. There is, however, one segment expected to look up heading into 1Q15 and that’s the healthcare sector. But more on that potential investment opportunity in a moment…

Healthcare Stocks to Benefit from Growing Obesity Concerns / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: DailyGainsLetter

George Leong writes: It’s headline news: America is getting bigger around the waistline and that means that there’s a greater potential for higher healthcare issues down the road—which isn’t a good sign for a healthcare system that is already struggling. (Maybe the government should offer monetary incentives, such as tax credits, for those who join gyms or pursue other healthy alternatives.)

Even though America is struggling with obesity, Americans realize the issues and consequencesthat go along with obesity and an unhealthy lifestyle.

All Crazy Now – Mental Healthcare In The UK / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Andrew_McKillop

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Returning to the UK, more exactly Scotland after many years in France I could call this a move from TSD Land to PTSD Land and the facts and figures back that claim. France like all other aging or mature democracies such as the UK is struggling with the unstoppable growth of Altzheimer's disease victims, with the curve suggesting the incidence of this disease will be claiming 750 000 new victims per year by the 2020s. Also having a fast-growing (by EU standards) population and a growing number of childhood cancer victims, as well as adult victims, the French national health spending implications are somber, but what happens to surviving victims of Altzheimer's disease, the treatement of which is improving and extending life expectancy of victims? In Britain, a UK Medical Research Council report of late October provides some of the answers.
