Opinion: Healthcare system can do better with less

The Columbus Dispatch, December 26, 2012

Has it ever occurred to the gladiators that improving the quality of health care can also save money? If Medicare spends less on a patient because the hospital does a good job the first time, that's what we call a win-win situation. The patient gets better care. The taxpayers get billed only once. Many ObamaCare critics simply can't say yes to the good news that the Affordable Care Act will actually reduce deficits—despite positive projections by the Congressional Budget Office. They won't concede that in a tremendously wasteful health care system such as ours, cuts in spending can be made without inconveniencing patients in the slightest.
