What’s Wrong with Healthcare ?

I just spent 2 hours out of my life, two lost worktime hours waiting with my wife for a 10-min sonogram. How is that possible ?! Yet, we all know it’s typical. I can see why airplanes are delayed. It appears that keeping 1000s of planes flying around, taking off and landing, is complicated and prone to problems that cause delays. I have no idea why you ALWAYS have to wait when you go to the doctor !!! What the hell is so complicated about scheduling appointments in a way that assures punctuality ? There is no doubt in my mind that healthcare has got to be by far the most inefficient sector of our economy. Start with that problem, and you may be making leaps towards fixing the systemic crisis.
