In defense of U.S. Healthcare-blog by Dr. Diebel

Last year I delivered the Presidential address to the South Atlantic Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists in which I discussed the fact that the United States spends much more money on our health care than any other country in the world. In spite of this huge difference in spending, we don’t do as well as many other countries when we look at the statistics which measure quality such as life expectancy, perinatal mortality and many others. A report by the respected Institute of Medicine in 2013 revealed that we also have a higher number of people with chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, obesity, hypertension and heart disease. So it would seem at first glance that our health care system is not up to the same level as other developed countries around the world and we should be ashamed of it.

But first impressions can sometimes be deceiving and we need to look a little deeper.   Many of us have benefitted from “miracles of medicine” and survived conditions that once may have been fatal because of incredible scientific advances. We also have a huge and incredibly diverse population and one which has always welcomed immigrants and people from around the world. The other developed countries we have been compared with have much more homogeneous populations and are much smaller. Our population is larger than the combined populations of Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Canada, France, Germany, Netherlands, United Kingdom and Switzerland. With size comes many problems of the distribution of medical care and many issues of social inequality. Other major issues are related to personal choices and responsibility that people make to smoke, not exercise and take care of themselves in general. It is well known that there is a huge increase in chronic conditions associated with obesity and smoking. We shouldn’t blame the resulting illnesses on inadequate quality of our healthcare system for what are self-induced habits and life styles. An interesting statistic is that 5% of U.S. population account for 50% of the money spent on healthcare.

So I don’t think we should be quite so hard on ourselves and our healthcare system in the United States for being second rate. America is still the place people from around the world come to for their healthcare when facing difficult problems   The profession, which is made up of dedicated, caring individuals will continue to strive to improve the health of all our citizens as we always have. Our efforts need to be ongoing in trying to correct the social inequalities in our population, the access to healthcare and assist people in taking more responsibility for their own health with life style changes.

Dr Arnold Lazar Honored at Winnie Palmer Hospital

Dr Arnold Lazar was honored at a party in his honor on May 6, 2014 for his many years of service to the Orlando Health Hospital System. He has served the hospital  in various leadership positions, including his most recent role as Chief Quality Officer.  He is a great communicator and educator, so it  is fitting that the learning classrooms at Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies are now named the "Arnold J. Lazar,MD Conference Center."

Over 200 of Dr Lazar's friends, family and colleagues were in attendance to honor him. They enjoyed some of Dr Lazar's favorite things including: Twizzlers, Ice Cream and his love of cycling. His  best friend and founding partner of  OB & Gyn specialists, Dr Don Diebel spoke about the early days in practice and at the  hospital. Kathy Swanson (President of Arnold Palmer medical Center), and Dr Mary Farrell also spoke about Dr lazar and all of the wonderful things that he has done to improve healthcare for patients in Orlando over the years. Congratulations to Dr Lazar !
