Dr Lundberg of the Lundberg Institute has come up with seven ways to reduce health care costs - right now.
He is calling for an alliance between patients and their physicians. This seems most appropriate. Dr's seem very quick to prescribe without guiding patients with the information they need to make lifestyle changes were possible. We've had the discussion before here, but it does seem now that the tracking being done by companies such as IMS seem to have launched Dr's into some sort of competition, much like the monthly and annual sales numbers reports do inside Pharma, to be a top prescriber and earn "frequent flier points"
So, does the good doctor make sense? What are the chances of these changes happening?
