Healthy Populations

Our hospitals today are concerned that "health care" means fixing health problems that people have.  After all, that's how hospitals have traditionally been paid. Replace a knee joint.  Get paid for fixing the joint.   The more hospitals did, the more they got paid.  

That is changing with reimbursements from Medicaid and Medicare based on, for example, whether a patient stays out of the hospital within 30 days of discharge. Medicaid and Medicare reimbursements can accout for half or more of all hospital revenues.
