It’s Friday and so I often like to do something a little bit more fun as we head into the weekend. We call it Fun Friday. So, today I want to share two healthcare cartoons. They’re pretty funny, but they also kind of make you sick when you realize the truths that they illustrate. Hopefully, these cartoons can help remind us about some of the real problems we need to deal with in healthcare.
I’m sure a lot of us have had this experience. It’s sad that it happens as much as it does. We can certainly do better. Doctors and patients need us to do better.
This next cartoon seems appropriate given the current conversation about healthcare reform. It reminds me that there are a lot of factors that influence our healthcare costs and the legislation I’ve seen doesn’t do anything for a lot of the problem areas. To quote my friend Neil Versel from Meaningful Health IT News, “Health insurance is not health care.” He’s right and that seems to be getting lost in the current healthcare reform discussion and legislation.
