Rewrite on Ted Video and the YouTube video.

Referring to TEDMED, I am able to realize health care research done for Intel, focusing on how new technology can be used and even far much able to solve big challenges in the system for the sick, technically it provide an idea on how to medically monitor behavior of patient by an example of a phone when it comes to managing their medication, taking the right medicine at the right time, this can be applied to all of other individuals and the aging. Additionally, behavior markers in the Ted video matters in social health, Dishman is trying to be innovative and working hard to convince Intel,  through coming up with new approaches to improve healthcare. In this case his idea worked on driving healthcare reform  through home and community-based technologies and services, I am able to realize that the US  healthcare system is like computing circs 1959, tethered to big with narrow central systems; nursing homes, doctors, hospitals. Since the aging population is increasing, it is important for the creation of networked, personal and home based health care which is supposed to take care of all of the aging population. I in the video am able to identifying how paying the care is not a big deal but actually the delivery of the care, the solution for innovative service delivery is a total shift from the mainframe care system to a personal model of healthcare.

Health care rationing debate

Comparatively the other YouTube video is able to explain much about healthcare rationing where much focus has been put on how health insurance is rationed based on the ability to pay and the price. Questions are raised on why sometimes it’s so difficult to talk about rationing and how to get people talk about what they don’t want to talk about. I realize there is little support by the government to reduce cut on the medical services and for health care to thrive the government should control regulation and increase innovation. Both ted video and the YouTube video is incorporating new technology in the improvement of health care. Every healthcare system is normally have challenge no matter how organized it is, in united states the disorganization normally arises due to the public and private complication which is brought by aging technology, political difference and lack of understanding on the peoples side. Additionally I realized that the government have been relax when it comes to support of new technology in the Medicare and politicians are resisting cut to raise money in support for the Medicare. One of the difficult questions raised is why it is so difficult to talk about rationing, this question both affects the government and the overall individuals where the two bodies should mutually depend on each other and it does not currently exist
