Focused Factories in Healthcare
This idea isn't new, well maybe to healthcare, but not to other industries.
Specialization always yields a better product from the sheer ability to concentrate the focus on the production of a single thing. Exclusivity of focus allows for naturally and organically developing efficiencies that could not exist when trying to be a generalist. These efficiencies translate into a low cost of goods sold while at the same time improving the quality of the service or good offered or produced.
How do we provide incentives for this sort of thing to occur in the United States?
