A group of 32 hand selected health organizations officially begun using a new medical program this week in order to test the efficiency and effectiveness of what could become the nation’s new health care plan for seniors. The various organizations are scattered all around the country in order to get the best possible feedback and assuming things go well it is possible that this new system could be put into use in less than a year, depending on political interactions.
The idea of the new system is based on preventative and preemptive treatment, rather than emergency response which will in theory save significant amounts of money. Doctors and hospitals involved will communicate openly in order to best determine each patient’s necessary treatment and healthcare needs so that they can reduce hospital and sick time and improve the quality of life overall.
So far analysts are hopeful that this type of health care plan will in fact work out well for seniors and at the same time it will save doctors, hospitals, and the medical industry millions of dollars yearly. If all of this does in fact work out it would also significantly reduce cost for the patients as well as government medical programs which is precisely why it is being tested. No word on when we may hear about how well the program is working but for now everyone is hoping that it works out well as it could bring great news to everyone involved if it does.
