  1. Key to Healthcare is Costs or so I heard on the radio this morning. They inwrtvieeed former governor from Oregon,John Kitzhaber. He says I don’t believe that what’s going to come out of Congress is going to have any impact on the medical cost inflation, which is what’s really crushing individuals and businesses, and really putting the country at economic risk. Seems odd that with all of the talk that there really is little discussion of the efficience available through technology.
