There is no magic wand to fix health care – The Hill

Read article - An opinion piece by Carrie Colla, associate professor of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, in which she discusses the complexity of improving American healthcare. "Politicians in office and on the campaign trail offer silver bullets and suggest no one will have to compromise. This simply isn't the case; our recent study shows yet again why silver bullet thinking is misguided," says Colla. "Real spending reduction in healthcare will require tradeoffs along at least one dimension: access, patient experience and choice, or quality." (Colla is participating in this year's Dartmouth Public Voices project.)
