In case anyone with private insurance is wondering how 25% of their health is provided by the public health system, it mostly means the immunizations you got as a kid. Immunizations, disease free water supply and decreased child mortality account for the vast majority of longevity increases seen over the last century.

The most important word read in this article is collaborative. Individuals have to take responsibility for their health, being a part of the team and solution.

Responsibility lies with both the providers and the recipients.

Confused about the comment about the importance of mental health treatment but there's no other reporting on the topic. There seems to be a disconnect here by the reporter or editor either has edited out an important discussion topic here or has an unfortunate bias and didn't follow-up this line of thinking which was the basis of this article about innovation in medical care.

Republicans have had decades to show us something better...

They did nothing about it, until forced to.

OK, Let's see it.
Please prove Obama wrong --

LDS lib,
dems have had decades to show us something better....

they have not. They gave us something worse than doing nothing.

and I guess the Obamacare crowd and other BO apologists ignore the graphic showing access to health care is only carries a 5% weight in determining a person's health.

And Obamacare does not encourage competition.

The BO misadministration will not allow Utah, or any other state for that matter, to vary one iota from their one-size-fits-all Obamacare, afetr all, BO knows best!
