The healthcare system in the United States is often seen as one of the best in the world, but even so, there are numerous flaws and shortcomings that keep it from being truly effective. One of the most pressing issues is how fragmented the healthcare system can be, leaving patients without access to proper care or resources. In a recent talk delivered at the Hay House HEAL Summit, Dr. Felicia Yu explored this issue in depth and offered her insights into just why our current healthcare system has so many shortcomings.
In her speech, Dr. Yu spoke about how each healthcare provider operates independently and has their own set of standards and procedures that they abide by; while some providers may have excellent practices in place, others may leave a lot to be desired. This can lead to discrepancies in quality care across different providers, with some patients receiving better treatment than others depending on which provider they choose – or are able to choose – for their care. Additionally, many patients lack knowledge regarding their own conditions or illnesses which can lead to misinformed decisions when choosing treatments or therapies.
Dr. Yu also suggested that providing more education and awareness regarding medical conditions could help bridge many of these gaps for those who don’t understand their illness or injury well enough to make informed decisions about their treatment options. Additionally, she argued that better communication between providers could ensure that all patients receive high-quality care regardless of where they seek it out from.
