Why is our health care cost SOooo high???

For years I worked as a Consulting Hospital Management Engineer.
Then I managed and programmed Information Systems.

Our health management delivery "system" is riddled with huge expensive inefficiencies caused by internal inefficiency and the
"Cottage Industry" model of organization which has its genesis with the "country doctor". This era is long passed because of modern technology, management and information processing.

Additionally, there are inefficient costs caused by regulation of the pharmaceutical and insurance industries which can be expected to resist change to their enormously profitable practices.
