Although most people believe that our health care system is in need of reform, there exists a subtle resistance to many of the required elements of reform execution.
Yet the numbers don't lie. In a 2013 report in the National Academies Press titled “U.S. Health in International Perspective” that looked at 17 developed nations, the U.S. ranked dead last. We also know, according to OECD Health Statistics 2012 that the cost of health care in the U.S. is 2.5 times higher than most developed nations in the world. Health care reform will improve quality and lower cost. so why is there such resistance?
