Ariadne

ARIADNE, THE LEGEND: In Greek mythology, King Minos of Crete built a LABYRINTH, a complicated maze which defied escape. In it he held the Minotaur, a monster with the head of a bull but the body of a man. To placate the creature, he would annually select by casting lots seven young men and seven virgins from Athens to send into the labyrinth as food for the beast.
On the third year, a young Athenian hero, Theseus, volunteered to go as one of the seven men with the purpose of slaying the monster. Minos’ daughter, Ariadne, who fell in love with Theseus, gave him a sword and a thread to unravel on his way into the labyrinth marking the route of exit. The young hero successfully killed the Minotaur and escaped, freeing the others with the aid of Ariadne’s wonderful thread. Read More

Healthcare solutions

In THE LABYRINTH, seniors receive healthcare modalities like home healthcare, nursing home care, wheelchairs, scooters and other health equipment, along with visits by nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists, etc. They are satisfied and believe they are receiving the best for very little cost. But they are not! Stay tuned to find out how this can be. Read More

Healthcare solutions

We need to think of healthcare like roads. We all have some need, some more than others and have different abilities to pay. I propose an across the board system like very basic Medicare for all citizens and paid by a tax base. Again think about roads. If you want more levels of service these will be extra. If you want the $25 dollar a pill new yet unproved statin or anticoagulant instead of the equally effective 50 cent generic, you can buy it. The same with the $20,000 total knee when the $4500 model has a long successful track record. If you really want it, pay the difference. I realize this is a somewhat naïve solution, but maybe a place to start. The key must be to keep it simple and honest. Read More

Solutions: We must get healthcare out of employment as does almost every other first-world nation. It was once a good idea but is no longer. Removing the healthcare burden from employers will allow them to make appropriate manpower decisions without fear of bankruptcy, improving business and employment. A single payer system would be ideal, but I’m afraid it can’t be the government which has shown us it is incapable of almost anything. I would suggest at the most two or three private entities with strict oversight to minimize the layers of useless bureaucracy with which we now suffer. Hold on, there is more to come. Read More

The Labyrinth

This just in on The Labyrinth!: A dynamic, high-stakes drama centered on a health care fraud. Orthopedic surgeon Kreis (The Pain Doc, 2013, etc.) has parlayed his extensive medical acumen into impressively dynamic medical thrillers. In his latest (The Labyrinth) he delivers a topical, serpentine thriller with a conscience.
—Kirkus Reviews
The Labyrinth may not be available from Amazon for a few days while this and other reviews are added. It should be up and running within a week. Read More

Healthcare solutions

With the new healthcare finance charges, we are seeing employers wanting to withhold care that is contrary to their principles, i.e. birth control. This could easily spread to other moralities such as blood transfusion and more importantly, childhood immunizations, possibly the most important advancement in public health since the sanitary sewer. The answer here is simple—tune in next time for the answer! Read More
