    A lot of problems don't require an outright MD for treatment.  A smarter system would be to employ PAs and NPs to handle easy problems and only escalate to doctors when necessary.  That is probably a smart way to reduce costs.

    However, it still doesn't explain why right now we're paying twice as much for inferior care than other countries.  We start out with severe inefficiencies that even smart practices are insufficient to solve.
