U.S. Healthcare Blues, Our Medical Bills Are Killing Us / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: John_Mauldin

It has been some time since we peeked into my worry closet. A few questions this weekend prompted me to think about things I am paying attention to but have not written about, and one thing that I am not worried about at all, despite the apparent media hysteria.

But first, a quick note. My tenth annual Strategic Investment Conference (May 1-3 in Carlsbad, California) seems to be filling up nicely. The speaker lineup is exceptional: Kyle Bass; Ian Bremmer; Mohamed El-Erian; Niall Ferguson and his wife, Ayaan Hirsi Ali; Lacy Hunt; Charles and Louis Gave; Jeff Gundlach; Anatole Kaletsky; David Rosenberg; Nouriel Roubini; and Gary Shilling.

Hospitals Unsafe at Any Blood Pressure, Socialism By Installments / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: MISES

Christopher Westley writes: What if the unintended consequences are actually intentional?

That's the thought I had recently upon learning about upcoming Medicare fines on hospitals that readmit patients due to complications within 30 days of an initial discharge. The logic is straightforward: If hospitals do not make a patient well the first time, then they suffer the additional cost of a fine.

Doctors Are Like Cops, Dangerous / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack D. Douglas writes: This is a good study of the soaring rate of dangerous MRSA infection from hospital stays by academic hospital insiders who used their inside knowledge of the U. of Chicago hospital and three others to correct for the massive 30% to 50% official underreporting and found that one out of twenty plus patients now gets serious MRSA hospital infection in the U.S., more than all the influenza and AIDS hospitalizations combined. That was a 100% increase in five years and the study ended in '08, so there has probably been another near doubling, or less if the growing infection control efforts coming out of Hopkins, etc., are beginning to pay off.

Boots Opticians Having Problems Digesting D&A? Discount Voucher and Review / ConsumerWatch / Healthcare Sector

By: N_Walayat

Following my recent vision problem for some 15 minutes whilst at Manchester Airport, I had no choice but to bite the bullet and visit my local GP (ecclesall medical centre). Whilst my expectations were already low, they still managed to disappoint, seems like the reception staff are trained to so their best to obstruct patients, but that's for another article, the long and short of it was I had to go and see an optician (at my own expense) with a scrap of paper from the Doc to determine if there was a problem with my eyes or not.
