More Health For the Care

The body politic and the medical care industry are not without honor but they cannot achieve optimum health status or cost containment by manipulating health insurance or reforming medical care. It is a matter of priorities. Health must be emphasized above sickness. Even what is considered successful treatment of a disease does not yield the health status prior to the disease. Furthermore, illness, disease, injury and disability will always be costly. It is best to avoid them, if at all possible.

More health for the care can be achieved by placing emphasis upon primary prevention integrated into all aspects of community life. Every institution and organization is involved and responsible. A public health care system will monitor and address health status in the community. Primary care medicine that is oriented to individual and community health will be the first responders to sickness. Linking and coordinating these activities depends upon educating the public and providers alike. Everyone needs health care, medical care is for those who need it.
