We have two choices. We can follow the delusion of "universal health care" or we can accept a market approach to health care. Putting patients in charge of their medical care is a market approach. It guarantees competence, at least. Universal health care is sickness care administered by politicians, bureaucrats, CEOs and other proven incompetents. None of these "medicrats" knows how medicine is practiced. All these administrators are driven by politics and economics. Excellence is destroyed in the initial stages of what is called "single payer" health care. The destruction of competence follows the destruction of excellence. Medicine was practiced. Medicine was a lifelong learning experience. Medicine was integrated. That was only yesterday. The present bureaucratized, fragmented and disintegrated program called "medical care" bears little resemblance to the practice of medicine. Today’s medical care is dysfunctional. Inevitable Incompetence details the growing danger and outrageous expenses in medical care. Inevitable Incompetence provides an understanding of the methods needed to alter the relentless course of rising expenditures and increasing deaths and injuries in the current world of "medical care." Inevitable Incompetence outlines the process required to return to excellence.
