Express Care

One of the problems with the expense of health care is the fact that many people tend to use a hospital's emergency room as their primary care facility, going there with normal ailments such as flu and severe colds. Emergency room care is expensive -- too costly to be used in that way.

A broader definition of entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are somewhat of a mascot for the U.S. economy -- nothing embodies the American dream more than an entrepreneur. Consequently, we've been trained to think there's a positive correlation between the number of start-ups and the health of the economy.
