    diagnosis and treatment, were between patient and doctor.  Then it became patient, doctor, and insurance provider.  Now it has become patient, doctor, insurance provider, employer.  Next it will be patient, doctor, insurance provider, employer, employer's primary religious advisor.  Then we will see patient, doctor, patient's lawyer, employer, employer's primary religious advisor, employer's legal advisor, employer's primary religious advisor's mentor/supervisor/grand poobah, whatever..  At some point the patient will be dropped from this equation.  After all, at that point, the patient, being the least important figure involved, due to having no medical, legal, or religious standing of any real consequence, becomes an inconsequential impediment and is properly done away with.
