The Inevitable Results of “Assembly Line” Health Care

How can someone who is having a heart attack go to the emergency room and walk away with a misdiagnosis of indigestion or “heartburn”? Why is it that every year, hundreds of thousands of Americans with serious and potentially life-threatening medical conditions, walk away from visits to the doctor’s office with a misdiagnosis of good health?

The simple answer is that our health care system is not set up to run like an assembly line. Doctors, nurses, medical assistants, surgeons, oncologists, obstetricians … everyone a patient sees from the time they step into a doctor’s office or hospital until the end of their treatment and rehabilitation process, is someone who often has a small, narrowly focused job.

Unfortunately, many times there is no one person who has the job of seeing the bigger picture for each patient’s overall care even though there should be.
