US healthcare has seen a recent uproar in making healthcare benefits available and accessible to the common. US President Barack Obama has signed his landmark healthcare bill into law in a ceremony at the White House. After a heated debate, the House of Representatives voted 219-212 late on Sunday to send the 10-year, $938bn bill to Mr Obama. Not one Republican voted for the bill, and some Democrats also voted against it.

While so much turmoil over restructuring healthcare benefits and standards, the governing membrane of the healthcare segment still remains restricted and conventional. Possibly it is the most apprehensive industry that has sustained its reluctance to achievement through innovation. The seed of healthcare is born at the advocacy level, where education and practise still remains aloof of the technology advancements.

When industries like retail, heavy manufacturing, etc have long adopted reaping lucrative benefits of technology facilitation, healthcare remains hard-shelled to its old functions and practices of education and practice training.

There is a surging need for healthcare associations, advocacies to direct thought leaders and advocacy leaders to resort to a permmiable membrane that allows open-consortium proposition and evaluation of tools and technologies that can advance healthcare delivery right from the foundational level.

Only then the efforts exercised at the political-governance level yield effective results through enhanced practice and care reforms and benefit the end common man.
