The traditional fee for service hospital should be dead. Many different corporations, from pharmaceutical companies to health insurers, are consistently pinned as the “bad guys” leading to rising costs in the US healthcare industry. While these organizations have done plenty to justify their vilification, I believe that hospitals deserve similar criticisms. While hospitals are home to many of our country’s heroes (physicians, nurses, social workers, etc.), their business model is not built to sustain our healthcare system into the future.
