As long as the medical and pharmaceutical industries are FOR PROFIT enterprises with a goal of maximizing shareholder value, our healthcare system will remain broken. Any healthcare related entity - whether an academic institution training healthcare service providers, a pharmaceutical sales organization, a research institute, a hospital, a doctor's office, a clinic, a pharmacy, a nursing home, etc. - any entity related to healthcare should be a NON-PROFIT entity with a goal of maximizing patient health; that should be the ONLY metric for success. Doctors, pharmaceutical researchers, medical academia ... anyone in the United States related in any way to medicine and all the related alleged "services" are ultimately just glorified drones working to make money for healthcare industry shareholders. This is just WRONG; the pinnacle of hypocrisy!
