New Data Projects Alzheimer's Disease in U. S. Could Affect up to 16 Million by 2050 Research Estimates Current Alzheimer Population at 4. 5 million Stockholm — New research released today at the 8 th International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders, sponsored by the Alzheimer's Association, indicates that the prevalence of the disease in the United States will increase from 4. 5 million in 2000 to between 11 and 16 million by the year 2050.
Yet some areas will lose population. .

Income Inequality is at historic levels
Ownership and Wealth in America is more disparate than any other industrialized country on Earth…
In 2002, 12. 1 million American children younger than 18 live below the poverty line, and one out of every six American children (16. 7 percent) was poor. That is more children living in poverty today than 25 or 30 years ago. A child in America is more likely to live in poverty than a child in any of the 18 other wealthy industrialized nations (for which data exist).
Income Inequality is a great predictor of homicide rates! (Equal to income alone…) Higher Inequality Higher Income-
Inadequate Investment in Future Generations Age 65 and over $17, 688 $21, 122 in 2010 u What the federal budget spends on each elderly American dwarfs what it spends on each child. Per capita federal benefit spending in FY 2000, by age group Under age 18 $2, 541 in 2010
What is our government response to this?

What about government funded health care? (e. g. , Medicare, Medicaid, etc. )
The Federal Budget: somethings gotta give…. .
At current rates, Trust Fund runs dry in 2026 So, we will have to: • Pay more • Do more with less • Deliver less (ration)
#3 Competition and Consumerism In a setting of excessive costs, focus will be on cutting costs by new efficiencies, and controlling demands for service
The Most Expensive Medical Instrument in the World u Studies have shown…. – Over 80% of the costs and most of the quality is driven by physician decisions u Experience has shown…. – Failure of Efforts to Change Actual Medical Practices Gets Much of the Blame [for the failure. to control health care inflation]” (Wall Street Journal, May 19, 1998) – Peace. Health…. . Managing care does not mean managing physicians and nurses. It means giving physicians and nurses the tools they need to manage optimal care….
New Competitive Pressures u u Healthcare is now exposed to market forces, and must respond as any business Providers will have to – drive their costs down – improve productivity just to remain in the game. Cost efficiency will be necessary for survival in the new healthcare market, but it will not be sufficient for long-term success. u 43
Healthcare Satisfaction Ratings $2600 Per capita spending (US. dollars 1989) $2400 u USA $2200 $2000 Despite spending more than any other country in the world, healthcare satisfaction among US consumers lags behind similar ratings in many other industrialized countries* $1800 Canada $1600 France Sweden $1400 Australia $1200 Italy Netherlands Japan $1000 United Kingdom $800 10 20 30 40 50 Satisfaction rating 60 * From the Center for Economics Research
Rising Consumerism in America u A new consumer is emerging – – Assertive (better educated, less time) Focused Pragmatic Demanding (not tolerant of inadequate information, poor service, inconvenience, poor value, etc. ) u This consumerism is dramatically changing other industries – Many examples (e. g. , retail, financial services, etc. ) – Case history: Book retailing u The same forces will impact health care!
What Consumers Will Want from Health Care u Convenience – Give me good information and let me participate in my care – Help me do it myself u Information – “Consumer Reports” of health care – If they care enough about toasters, TV’s and cars, do you doubt they will feel equally strongly about going to a hospital and allowing a surgeon to slice them open? u Support – Reduce costs, document & raise quality, improve access

Does Physician Profiling Work? u There are many studies of the effects of profiling, usually Cost showing that variation declines and outcomes improve. For instance: – Information sharing can reduce laboratory use by emergency physicians. Ramoska, EA, Am J Emerg Med. 1998 Jan; 16(1): 34 -6. – Effectiveness of a physician education program in reducing consumption of hospital resources in elective total hip replacement. Johnson CC; Martin M, South Med J. 1996 Mar; 89(3): 282 -9. – Provider and practice profiling with electronic patient records. Churgin, P, In: Toward an electronic patient record ‘ 97: proceedings, volume one. Newton, MA: MRI, 1997. : 8 -12. – Using profiling for cost and quality management in the emergency department. Ahwah I, Karpiel M. AHSR FHSR Annu Meet Abstr Book. 1996; 13: 186 -7. – “Case Study of Physician Profiling, ” Managed Care Quarterly, 1994; 2(4): 60 -70. – “Measuring and Reporting Managed Care Performance: Lessons Learned and New Initiatives, ” Annals of Internal Medicine, Part 2, 15 October 1997. 127: 726 -732. LOS – ”Effects of Feedback of Information on Clinical Practice - A Review, ” BMJ, 1991; 303: 398 -402. I especially like the last reference, a review article of more than 30 studies in the British Health Service of the effects of profiling - in every case the variation in care declined and outcomes improved.
Some Questions. . . u u u Would it be ideal to have access to your own, reliable, cost and quality data to compare to such “report cards” and disprove them if you feel your “grade” is inappropriately low? If your results aren’t good, wouldn’t you want to proactively know that and demonstrate you can improve? Wouldn’t “riding the wave of change” be a better long term survival strategy than refusing to participate?
Prescription Drug Benefits An Example of Consumer Demand…
Prescription coverage has increased since 1990
And a large % now have coverage…
As a result, ”direct-to-consumer” ads tripled over just 4 years…

Proportion of Medical Professionals Who Have Witnessed Serious Medical Errors, 2001
The Institute of Medicine 2001: “To Err Is Human” u u u The US health care system is seriously flawed and is a major source of morbidity, mortality and missed opportunities to benefit people. There is not just a gap, but a chasm between what is and what can and should be provided to people. The system can not be fixed in its current form; it is in need of fundamental change and must be re-designed.
So! At the beginning of the 21 st Century: u u u The myth that the United States has the best health care system in the world is exposed. We are witnessing an awakening to the fact that our 70 -year commitment to specialism, reductionism and biomedicine, even though productive, has proved insufficient. A new world of medicine, not yet born but gestating, is coming right at us.
