In a September 10 Maine Voices column in the Portland Press Herald, Dan Bryant, MD, offers a prescription for “How to remove obstacles on our path to universal health care.” 

Bryant notes that “’stopgap’ changes to such a complex system are not enough. They’re unlikely, for instance, to improve the patient or physician experience, to control costs significantly, or to ensure everyone is covered. What they will almost certainly do is add to the complexity.”
