Will email unlock the future of primary care?

Probably, but the fact that we don’t know yet has frustrated virtually every patient and many doctors Written by Tristan Bronca on November 26, 2018 for The Medical Post The irony of calling a 40-year-old, universal method of communication “the future” is not lost on us. But we at the Medical Post are proponents of news you can use and believe that in order to discuss the future, we must first discuss the near-future or—more precisely—the present in some places.

EDU | Health Care Around the World: Switzerland, “Physician Compensation”

Switzerland has strong regulation with respect to non-physician health care professionals (e.g., nurses, PAs, NPs,) and thus patients are often compelled to use expensive physicians even when this may not be medically necessary. Switzerland’s health care spending as a percentage of GDP is second only behind the U.S. (11.6% of GDP for Switzerland, 15.3% for the U.S. according to Frontline), yet the government pays for very little of this funding.

Health savings account guide: Does an HSA make sense for you?

Clark Howard Staff | December 12th, 2018 1:38 am Health savings accounts (HSAs) can be a great way to both plan for the future and meet your health care needs right now.The basic idea with HSAs is that you start with a high-deductible health insurance policy that offers a low premium. Then, taking the money you save in premiums versus traditional health insurance, you can funnel that cash into a tax-free investment account.Any money in your account that you don’t use for today’s health care expenses grows over time and can be tapped for future health expenses or used for retirement down the road.
