Health Care- system

You can do whatever you want to with healthcare funding, but this is the biggest problem out there. Disjointed care makes it real hard to take care of a mobile population. And with the general lack of consensus on treatment guidelines, and the regional variability of quality facilities and staff....
Meanwhile, how a good SYSTEM can solve a problem in the health field.
I like how researchers always say,"Just give us more money for (insert diagnosis here) research and we'll get you a cure. SOON!!" Plus- heart disease kills more people than cancer. I'm cool with cancer research, but I don't think it will lead to a cure in the next 10 years if the state of Texas invests $1,000,000 a day for 10 years. Science does not work this way. It's trial and error and trial again.
