It seems to me that one of the reasons that we do not have a good preventative healthcare prgram is because in the US technology is king and is perceived as glamorous and the quick fix to all medical problems. Additionally, it is very lucrative to Medicine Inc. The majority of media medical stories are all about the latest medical gadgets and pulling patients back from the brink. I am not a Luddite by any means, but I think our cultural emphasis and reimbursement system has to change before we see any real change in our healthcare model. I agree with Dr. Chopra entirely we have a disease-care system. Preventative medicine offers a huge bang for buck, but this is completely overshadowed by our emphasis on the latest technology and "miracle cures".
