Good health care is the greatest gift that government can give to its people.
Our present system of city, county, state and federal health departments is an expensive duplication of services.
THE SMART MEDICAL SYSTEM
The Smart Medical System has a National Medical Research Center, with branches in every major city, where scientists, engineers, and mathematicians develop and maintain the "Smart System".
To do this, they use Computers, the Internet, and Web Pages (with Links) that connect people with the Research Center by Webcam, Touch Screen, Speech Recognition, Pattern Recognition, Special Data Entry Keyboard, and Check Lists.
Most importantly, the Smart System has
Software that matches symptoms with diseases
prioritizes the diseases.
A symptoms/ disease algorithm.
They also have networks of doctors, clinics, and research centers that support them.
Also, importantly, they create Doctor Placement Tests and Health Care Facility Evaluations Sheets that identifies the expertise of the doctor or facility. For example, Dr. Smith treats Strep throat, Acid Reflux, Ring Worm, High Blood Pressure, etc.
Also, the Smart System suggests tests, diagnosis, treatments, and doctors for people with unique illnesses.
The Research Center assists clinics, doctors, and health care facilities to develop check sheets, such as, the Patient Progress Form for Home Care or Hospital Care. Or, Patient Data Sheets that help improve the Smart Medical System.
Equally important, the National Medical Research Center insures that
The "Smart Medical System" works something like this,
A Smart Medical System
As I sat in the doctor's office, gazing at the wall, I realized that I was hoping this doctor would help me. I said to myself, "Wait a minute! Why am I sitting in a doctors office, for the umpteenth time, wasting my time and money, hoping this doctor will help me? Why can't I know he will help me?"
Then, I realized that our medical system is not a “smart” system. Those giant computers in our finest clinics do not compute. They merely store data. In fact, the only information we’ll find on their computer is a journal of the doctor’s tests, diagnosis and treatment.
So, I said to myself, "Why can't we have a 'smart' system like Solomon Brothers or Goldman and Sachs whose Super Computers match securities with risk and pick the best stocks from around the world?
"Why can’t our mathematicians, scientists, and engineers develop a program that enables computers to match symptoms with disease and create a prioritized list of tests, diagnosis, treatments, and doctors?
"With this system, we can use home computers and the Internet to solve our medical problems. Never again will we sit in a doctor’s office, hoping for help, because a “smart” system automatically refers difficult cases to research centers where scientists help us.
"Eventually, this system will connect doctors, health care facilities, and medical institutions worldwide.
Common illnesses will be treated locally and difficult cases internationally.
This is not futuristic thinking. It can be done today.
Wall Street already did.
