Replacing Obamacare - Dean Clancy at BlogCon

On April 21, 2012, FreedomWorks’ health care VP Dean Clancy updated bloggers at BlogCon CLT in Charlotte, NC, on the Tea Party’s fight to replace ObamaCare with a patient-centered health care system.

In a talk titled “Health Care: How We Win,” Clancy described the battle as being waged on four fronts: 1) the court of public opinion; 2) the Supreme Court; 3) Congress; and 4) the states; and he optimistically predicted, “We are going to win this thing!”

Clancy concluded by offering bloggers a handy list of health policy experts to interview and consult as the health care battle heats up.

P.S. On April 27th, Dean asked me to add a quick clarification. In the talk, he describes the conservative Heritage Foundation as being in favor of a policy called "auto-enrollment," as a fallback to ObamaCare's infamous health care mandate. Dean is critical of that idea, viewing it as unnecessary and, under current conditions, imprudent. A friend has since told him that Heritage may not in fact formally embrace auto-enrollment. So he's now seeking clarification on this point. I'll update this post as soon as we have more info.

Healthcare has actually been developing away from a "disease-centered design" and to a "patient-centered design" for some time. In the older, disease-centered design, medical professionals make virtually all treatment choices based mostly on clinical experience and data from different medical examinations. In a patient-centered style, clients come to be active individuals in their very own care and get services produced to concentrate on their individual requirements and inclinations, in addition to assistance and counsel from wellness experts.

When customers and service providers have a selection amongst treatment plans, a patient-centered method has a great deal to suggest it. This can easily occur when doctors do not agree on the superior management for the condition or when different non-life-threatening results could result from the different therapies offered for a condition. Instances of such "preference-driven" conditions are benign enlargement of the prostate and graphic complications resulting from cataracts. In such situations, the greatest treatment method relies on the strength of clients' inclinations for the different wellness outcomes that could result from a treatment choice.
