The United States of HealthcareSM (Part 2)

By: | Tags:

In part one of our blog series, The United States of Healthcare, we have effectively thrown down the gauntlet[1] that “healthcare is the business of America” today and possibly even more so for the next 10-20 years. Although I  did not plan to discuss this exact point this week, the news released by the U.S. on the growth in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) got my attention and proved hard to pass up. The release was that 4th quarter GDP in the U.S. economy grew by 2.1%. [2] CNBC reported: WASHINGTON — The […]

The United States of Healthcare(SM) (Part 1)

By: | Tags:

Happy New Year! Recently, we completed our long series of blogs titled Healthcare 2030 and we continue to discuss some of the topics on our podcast: https://oxiohealth.io/podcasts/ For 2020 and beyond, we will continue to focus primarily on U.S. healthcare issues.  Occasionally, we will include healthcare issues affecting other nations, as well as other global matters. The title of this blog, “The United States of Healthcare,” has been germinating for a while.  I first used this term when I was trying to make the point that, all roads in the […]

Healthcare 2030 (Part 7_Final)

By: | Tags:

Healthcare 2030 (Part 7) In preparation for the upcoming new year, I would like to close our running series on Healthcare 2030.  First, I’d like to go back to a brief comment we made in Part 4 noting an aging population; it is not just a developed world problem, China’s population is also getting rapidly older.  As we noted, it is just below the U.S. on median age. The median age by country: Japan 47.3 Germany 47.1 Italy 45.5 U.S. 38.1 China is 37.4 It seems that China has also […]

Healthcare 2030 (Part 6)

By: | Tags:

As we move forward with Part 6 of our blog series, Healthcare 2030, we hope that we’ve been able to detail why we advocate healthcare as a dominant business segment of the United States.  It is about to get crazier as we are just passing the midpoint of the Baby Boomer generation entering the Medicare program and their high healthcare cost consumption years. Medicare has seen this unavoidable wave for decades.  It has tried to push and incentivize Medicare beneficiaries into more predictable managed care or Medicare Advantage (MA) programs, […]

Healthcare 2030 (Part 5)

By: | Tags:

In our last blog, Healthcare 2030 (Part 4), we dove deep into the weeds of our conversation and we introduced a new term, Age Dependency Ratio (ADR).  The issue highlighted the impact on Japan for over the last two decades, as well as Europe for over a decade, and how it is now beginning to impact the United States.  We blurred the lines between economics and healthcare, and we discussed why we believe that healthcare is the best and the most resilient industry in the United States, today. In our […]

Healthcare 2030 (Part 4)

By: | Tags:

Our last blog, Healthcare 2030 (Part 3), we discussed demographics and what we expect will be an accelerated demand for healthcare as Baby Boomers age.  As we continue this series, we will elaborate more on this discussion and provide our reasons why we believe things are different this time.  First, we have expanded our Company’s news releases and have added on a new project, podcasting.  If you haven’t heard our first episode yet, be sure to head over to our partner site, OXIOHealth.io and sign up for our free podcast […]

Healthcare 2030 (Part 3)

By: | Tags:

Healthcare 2030 (Part 3) Our last blog, Healthcare 2030 (Part 2), ended with the prediction of a new “golden age of healthcare.”  I realize it is impossible to predict a golden age before it has happened, however, in this case, we may have one exception. Once referred to as “The Maestro,” Allan Greenspan once said or wrote something like ‘demography is history.’  His premise was that if you have great demographic information, with historical perspective and behavior economics (my injection, not his), you could predict just about anything. A simple […]

Healthcare 2030 (Part 2)

Healthcare 2030 (Part 2) In our last blog, Healthcare 2030 (Part 1), we ended with some rather bleak topics.  As a balance, we will discuss some really great news this week from a recent article in the U.S., “September unemployment rate falls to 3.5%, a 50-year low, as payrolls rise by 136,000.”[1] The news is very good for all of us living in the U.S., and potentially for many others who depend on the U.S. business activity, at a time when most of Western Europe, Japan, Korea and even China […]

Healthcare 2030 (Pt. 1)

By: | Tags:

We have had an incredibly busy summer in South Florida. I would like to say that healthcare was also quiet however, it seems more activity, more stress and more desire to change the path of U.S. healthcare continues to grow each year. In our last blog, we warned that “Medicare for All” would make the U.S. Healthcare problem worse. Though we believe the U.S. healthcare delivery is not among the best, it has also become very frail, and it is becoming very concerning. In 1965, the U.S. was at the […]
