The revolving door turns for health care agencies and health care business as well

Kudos again to Dr. Roy Poses for his tireless efforts to battle the forces that are destroying health care core's values.

See here on his blog Health Care Renewal for his investigative report on just two instances of the revolving door between government agencies regulating health care and the big players who provide various aspects of health care.

Here is Dr. Poses' next to last paragraph:

As we wrote before health policy in the US, in particular, has become an insiders' game. Unless it is redirected to reflect patients' and the public's health, facilitated by the knowledge of unbiased clinical and policy experts rather than corporate public relations, expect our efforts at health care reform to just increase health care dysfunction.

"Insider's game" is the exact appropriate characterization.
