Is it right to limit competition among health care institutions
Please share your research, experience, and thoughts: Since health care tends to be local, as a policy maker, what would you do to encourage the large community (retailers, restaurants, employers, schools, etc.) to improve the health of the community? For these initiatives should the government play a role or should they be sponsored by other entities? In many states, the Certificate of Need (CON) requirement is still being practiced. Is it right to limit competition among health care institutions in a proximate region–simply because of, say, political clout or who has the deeper pockets? Defend your response.
