As the basic needs for cost, quality and access continue to rise, how do you see the future of health care? What long term strategies do we need to have in place to assure our healthcare success as a nation?
In the future of health care, I believe that there will be some extrodinary change. Firstly, in the U.S, if the Affordable Healthcare Act goes well, many citizens will be beneficial. The citizens that do not afford to buy health insurance can now have health insurance; the health insurance can no longer discriminated the people who have the history medical; the citizens can afford to pay the medical payment and enjoy the high quality health service; Medicaid would be expanded to cover everyone whose income is below 150 percent of the poverty line, or about $33,000 per year for a family of four. Besides, the patients can take on a larger and more active role in managing their wellness and health. In the past, healthcare has been a top-down proposition, with the physician at the top as sole authority instructing the patient . Of course, in the future, I am pretty sure that the technology will be more advanced. Then the earlier detector will work well. With new detection technologies, serious conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes and digestive system problems can be mitigated. Thirdly, high-tech healing can significantly boost outcomes and quality of life. Even though there are may be many long term strategies that can help assure our healthcare success as a nation, in my opinion, the leadership strategy is most useful and essential. Healthcare field confront many difficulties and challenges in reform period, leader are the essential part to make sure the success. The leader, is not means a role, but means a process that various department must cooperate to work together to overcome the difficulties and solve the complex problems.
