As we post this podcast, the US has vaccinated about 2 percent of its population, Canada is at 0.5 percent, France is at 0.001 percent, and Israel? 20 percent. By the end of this week, Israel will have vaccinated two-thirds of its population over 60 years old and most of the country’s medical staff, at which point they will all be called back for their second vaccination.

According to international studies, Israel’s healthcare system has been ranked among the most efficient in the world. And due to big data and AI, the Israeli health system is certainly one of the most digitally advanced.

What will we learn from Israel about a key stage of Post-Corona once it gets there?

    Loved this interview. Israel is to be commended.

    Two Questions.

    Given the ethical commitment Israel has made re healthcare, does the system include any formal system for rationing care e.g. Ezekiel Emanuel’s “Complete Lives System” that was a feature of the American ACA?

    Do the competing non profit health plans have incentives to avoid signing up high cost risk people and to pursue low cost risk people?

     

    Thank you!

    Ricochet Audio Network: When IS Post Corona, anyway?

    There will be no post-corona. The virus is here to stay, joining all the other viruses that rear their ugly heads every year. Because our leaders politicians don’t want to be held responsible for even one death after lifting COVID rfestrictions, I’m afraid they’re here to stay indefintely . . .
