Health care

Eliminate needless paperwork

Health-care providers in the trenches know what the problems of health-care delivery are. We are tired of being told how to practice medicine and take care of patients, so the insurance industry and pharmaceutical industries can benefit first.

Adopting new technology works in other industries. It needs to revamp health care to eliminate needless paperwork and bureaucracy.

Delivery of care can happen more efficiently and save money. We’d all like to see the cost of care come down and safety improve.

— Hannah Albert, Vashon
