Outsourcing Health Care?

The trend toward outsourcing in business has not peaked yet. I am sure that outsourcing will become a major part of health care reform. It has been evident for several years now, that where it is possible, outsourcing is the name of the game. Physicians send us to a vendor for cat-scans and MRIs. That one is obvious, it takes allot of money to pay back expensive imaging equipment. The vendors can make money if the volume of tests is high enough to make it work. My own primary care doctor outsources stress tests. He has a company come into his office once a month to do all of them on one day. The patients line up like birds on a wire to wait for a turn on the tread mill. Outsourcing makes good sense for the right kind of procedure.

It occurred to me that another valuable opportunity to outsource  is a service that costs every community tons of money; i.e. 911 calls. It won’t be long before we dial 911 for our personal emergency, and we will reach an unintelligible source on the other end of the call, most likely in India. Can you imagine the fun we will have with that one?
