Wasted health care money?

CNNMoney.com has a pretty good overview here of how billions and billions could be saved in the health care industry: ["Health Care's Six Money-Wasting Problems"].
Note: Nothing about containing profits or regulating obese profits mind you, just the most obvious things ... Worth a read though. And for goodness sake, wash your friggin' hands all the time!

Of course what was left out were corporate profits and high exec salaries and the higher cost of drugs because there isn't much ability to negotiate prices. Both issues fixed by a single payer national health care plan.

Interesting to see that unnecessary visits to the ER was an order of magnitude smaller than administrative waste.
