HiFi's and Healthcare | Trusted.MD Network

HiFi's and Healthcare | Trusted.MD Network: "Specialty facilities can offer more expert care more quickly, and (perhaps) more cost-efficiently than traditional hospitals. They lack, of course, extended stay options; when my mother was recently hospitalized, she was taken first to the same facility as I had been, but had to be transported later that day to a 'regular' hospital. Still, we couldn't have known that at the time, and it seemed a reasonable choice.

It seems to me that 'distributed healthcare' may be on the horizon. By unbundling services, providers can specialize more efficiently, which may lead to a reduction in the cost of health care (and hence, of health insurance).

Something to keep an eye on."
