Heavenly Battle

Next year’s medical fees are expected to rise by 0.88%.

As a result, it is said that next year’s revision will not make any progress in reducing the financial burden.

Medical fees are revised once every two years, and are scheduled for next fiscal year.

This is a battle of the gods taking place in heaven between the medical association, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, and the Ministry of Finance.

Medical remuneration is determined in incredible detail.

Forty years ago, people were desperate to get information from medical associations and consultants as quickly as possible.

Then, we will simulate how our hospital’s income will change by looking at the combination of tests and drug prices in the receipt.

This was the manager’s job.

Now that I think about it, it was a futile task.

So, I created a revenue and expenditure business plan for the next year and thought about financing.

I wonder what this work was like, which was probably done all over Japan.

As I can tell you from those on the ground who are struggling, we cannot win this war even if we increase gasoline supplies by 0.88%.

I would like to see the monopoly held by doctors and nurses eased.

Unless you have a license, such as a missile launcher or a cannon launcher, you cannot use weapons.

It’s like having a different license qualification for a cruiser captain or an aircraft carrier captain.

The director of a public health center must be a doctor, but I think it would be better to have an administrative person who is knowledgeable about administration to implement the plan.

You should have understood this well in response to the coronavirus.

Optometry can be performed automatically by a machine, even if you are not a doctor.

Vaccine injections can also be performed by nurses or laboratory technicians in foreign countries.

If you have diabetes and take daily insulin injections, you might think you can do it yourself.

You don’t need to be a nurse to measure your weight during a health checkup.

Apparently, death certificates can be issued by anyone other than a doctor in the United States. At the very least, I wonder if it would be possible to provide end-of-life care at a facility through collaboration between doctors’ online consultations and on-site nurses.

In reality, the staff is so tight.

I would like to see an increase in the number of students admitted to medical schools and nursing schools.

Not all law school graduates become lawyers.

Not all people who graduate from literature departments become writers.

Not all first-class architects do the work of designers.

Not all beauty school graduates work at beauty salons.

Furthermore, even after graduating from medical school, an increasing number of doctors are choosing to pursue higher-paying jobs in the IT and financial businesses.

What if we expanded the scope of medical school to accommodate qualified people who are not employed?

Dentists, pharmacists, laboratory technicians, and nutritionists are being produced in greater numbers than there is demand.

That’s why there is competition, studying, and working hard.

Salaries will also be naturally restrained.

Since we are in an industry with official prices, I think it would be good to allow more mixed medical treatment in order to allow for a variety of medical treatments.

I am aware that there are no supporters in the industry for this opinion.

I guess I’m wrong. perhaps.

But I think so.

The current system doesn’t make anyone happy.

Come to think of it, I no longer hear the term “rice price struggle."
