I am really coming to loath everything about hospitals

Even well run hospitals with good staff. Everything about the delivery of care absolutely sucks. None of it makes good use of technology. None of it is patient oriented -- it is disease oriented and system oriented. And the cost of retrofit is ridiculous.

What we need to do is utterly redesign hospitals from scratch. Hell, we need to zero-base the entire healthcare delivery system and rethink it. The basic hospital care delivery model is fundamentally unchanged since the mid-20th century. Give me a billion dollars and a country to play with and I can redesign the friggin' healthcare system to simultaneously reduce cost AND deliver better care.
