Simply put Single-payer healthcare is a system in which the one body , as opposed to private insurers, cover all your healthcare costs.

Single Payer Healthcare?
Single Payer Healthcare?
Indeed it it one of they key areas in the current US presidential election. In the UK it is a governmental body the National Health Service (NHS) which provides the payment while in , say Canada it comes from private organisations. It should be noted that single payer refers to the payor rather than the provider of healthcare.

So how might it be funded?

Well according to Physicians for a National Health Program “The program would be funded by the savings obtained from replacing today’s inefficient, profit-oriented, multiple insurance payers with a single streamlined, nonprofit, public payer, and by modest new taxes based on ability to pay. Premiums would disappear; 95 percent of all households would save money. Patients would no longer face financial barriers to care such as co-pays and deductibles, and would regain free choice of doctor and hospital. Doctors would regain autonomy over patient care.”

Our question to you is do you support such a system. Please let us know using the poll below. If you would like to feel free to use the comments boxes below to explain you thinking in more detail.

It would be great if you could also tell us which candidate will be the best person to be in charge of American healthcare.

Thanks in advance!

What is the Healthcare of the Future? This may give a few clues.

How frustrating is it when you have to wait for what seems an eternity in your local healthcare facility to see a doctor? It’s not one of life’s better experiences, that’s for sure, so you’ll be happy to know that the time has come that you don’t have to do this any longer. That’s because of the exciting new world of virtual healthcare.

If you’re bed-ridden and need medical assistance, you’ll be able to avail of it almost instantly thanks to the development of hologram house calls. This is where a medical professional ‘visits’ you by appearing as a hologram in front of your eyes and conducting their business as if they were actually there with you in your home. Also, patients can download a virtual doctor app for receiving medical advice and treatments with just a few taps on a smartphone or tablet.

Virtual healthcare isn’t just hugely beneficial for patients, either. It has the potential to save the healthcare industry millions of dollars and man hours by rapidly reducing the amount of time that physicians need for tending to their patients. It’s a cyclical process which benefits all parties, even though there is some resistance to it from physicians who have concerns over the means of reimbursement, as well as patient data security.

If you want to know more about the growing phenomenon that is virtual healthcare, take a look at this infographic from Home Healthcare Adaptations (
