Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts the show discussing the cost of health care.  Outlining the fact that 2.7 billion dollars are spent world wide on health care annually.  Of that 2.7 billion the U.S. spends 2.2 billion while ranking 46th among industrialized nations in health and longevity.  Meaning that despite the fact the U.S. spends more than all the other 45 nations combined they have better health and longevity.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss two recent news articles the first concerns a new FCC plan to bring high speed internet service to rural areas.  The reason for the $400 million plan is to provide "telemedicine" to these areas.  Next Doug and Doc discuss a study that has found ERs (emergency rooms) are profoundly understaffed when it comes to "on-call" specialists.
