For 2 years I have suggested three things that woould probably fix 80% of the health cost issues of the country. 1. Enforced and increased personal accountability and responsibility 2. Tort reform as suggested in the article - immunity when protocols are followed. 3. Limiting end-of-life care (or at least what society pays for) to evidence based care. If these three priciples were in place there would be little or no need for federal interventions.
