Who is responsible for healthcare?


Healthcare is failing, and blame is flailing. The blame game is on, and everyone is under fire. So who is ultimately responsible for healthcare? I propose that it’s the medical journals, because they're the only nexus for doctors, nurses, patients, schools, hospitals, research, and Big Pharma. Without real incisive input from medical journals, healthcare reform can never take place.
