Healthcare Myths

Published on

In this presentation, we highlight 5 of these commonly held myths about the US healthcare industry and provide some insight into why they simply are not true.

In order to improve the overall healthcare system and create informed consumers it is necessary to negate the common myths surrounding the US healthcare system. Many myths over-simplify the complexity of an industry that generates $2.7 trillion each year and employs 16 million Americans. Other myths try to place blame for problems within the system or arise from a lack of understanding of care delivery and cost drivers within the industry.

  3. 3. 3 More care is better care.FACT:More healthcare does not always meanbetter care or improved outcomes.Unnecessary care can cause false positivesand even cause health problems.
