Nanomedicine - A Key Component to the Future of Medicine

Posted on October 29, 2013 at 11:43am 0 Comments

Nanotechnology is making fast advances in medicine. I have written about it before here and in "The Future of Medicine - Megatrends in Healthcare." A nanometer is one billionth of a meter. New science and technology based on the nanometer refers to the ability to manipulate individual atoms and molecules to build machines on a scale of nanometers or to create materials and structures from the bottom up with novel properties.…


Have You Had Your Colonoscopy Yet? –A Ludicrous Colonoscopy Rule and the ACA

Posted on October 14, 2013 at 9:21am 0 Comments

Is there a good solution to the Medicare cost and quality issues? Setting aside either the…


Republicans’ Medicare Fix – Defined Benefit Becomes Defined Contribution

Posted on August 15, 2013 at 8:55am 0 Comments

The Republicans’ proposals for Medicare are quite different than the Democrats’ in that they begin with fundamental structural changes that will convert Medicare from a defined benefit to a defined contribution plan. The Democrat’s plan, see my last post, approaches the fix mainly with price controls. 

Politicians realize that Medicare will not be able to continue on its current track. Something has to change since the country will simply not be able to afford the inexorable growth…
