The Parthenon Strategy in Military Medicine
Health care in the United States is being driven by rapidly increasing technical capability, escalating cost, and the perception that the healthcare system is not adding value to the individual or to the society that is funding it. These facts and perceptions produce conflict, currently unresolved, between the patients, providers, and payors of health care. This conflict hinges on issues like what level of health care individuals are entitled to, what care should be provided, and who will pay for the benefit. Currently, the general sentiment is that health care should be perfect, immediate, and free.
