Let’s stop making it so easy to retain the healthcare status quo
Regarding the May 8 editorial “End the slow-walk on payment reform” (p. 24), I'm with you. “It's time for the baby to learn to walk.” I see this as a study in human decisions as well as healthcare reform. It reminds me that people resist change unless the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change. We keep finding ways to make staying the same comfortable. Until this ends, we may likely fall short of enabling the changes our rational self knows that we need.
