Deja Vu All Over Again – Where Have all the …Gone?

As I was reading this article from the NY Times today and put it on Twitter earlier today I had a strange sense of Déjà Vu.  Probably because it reminded me of this earlier post on my blog.

I have an sense of impending crisis in healthcare that will be reminiscent of the recent bailout of the financial institutions and the possible bailout of the automotive industry.  The only question will be who will bailout medical providers?  Sadly this is a crisis that if not solved soon will require a much more lengthy period of recovery as the education and training of medical providers takes years so the recovery curve is likely to be extraordinarily lengthy.
