MDRP Spotlight Video: Governor Howard Dean on America’s Healthcare Reform

As we count down the hours until the Supreme Court decision on the constitutionality of healthcare reform, let’s take a look back at Howard Dean’s talk on Healthcare Reform at the 2011 Medicaid Drug Rebate Program Summit.

He looks at the current state (pre-Supreme Court decision) of heatlhcare, looking at Mitt Romney's Massachusetts plan, shares why the reform isn't really reform as it's still currently working with today's system.  He shares that the major cost of the way we run healthcare is in fact the way healthcare is provided itself.  The system is built around receiving money from payors, there is no incentive in the system to provide preventative care or to save money.
