Super Specialization-Let’s Make Some Money
By Rick Redalen, M.D.
One of the largest problems in medicine in the US today is the super specialization. It is great to have a physician who knows so much about one little area of care. If that happens to be the area of expertise you need, it can be valuable to the point of lifesaving. Unfortunately the care becomes so fragmented that the overall care of the patient becomes quite poor.
This is somewhat evidenced by the fact that in spite of all our new diagnostic modalities the status of healthcare in the United States has fallen to 37th in the world. This parallels what has happened to our country in education where we now rank 37th in the world in education. We now rank behind many of the third world countries in many measurements of health care. We rank behind Puerto Rico in longevity. We rank behind Cuba in infant mortality.
