US Medicine and Global Outsourcing
Food for thought and discussion:
Medical tourism has been gaining some attention. Technology is allowing remote diagnosis. Some insurers (Regence BCBS affiliates) provide worldwide coverage.
Will the US healthcare system be increasingly pressured to be more "consumer oriented and competetive" by global competition?
Will possible global competition affect state by state licensing and regulation of medical professionals? Or will state by state licensing continue to enforce defacto monopoly?
