Financial Performance: “I will build on our successes, and be vigilant about controlling costs, especially when times are good. That is when costs can get bloated.”

TING PRINCIPLES

U.S. HEALTHCARE SHOULD BE UNIVERSAL FOR ESSENTIAL SERVICES, NOT-FOR-PROFIT, HAVE A BUDGET CAP, AND HAVE ALIGNED INCENTIVES FOR ALL PROVIDERS TO MANAGE HEALTH, NOT VOLUME OF SERVICES

There are political and financial forces against this, but other industrialized countries have it, and Americans deserve and should demand it from industry and government! Learn More →
