Graphic of the Month

This graphic of the month shows the labor stagnation in healthcare.  Since 1990, the average healthcare worker has not increased productivity.  Nearly every other sector of the American economy has become more productive.  Fewer workers are required to produce computers, cars, televisions and even the food we eat.  Yet, despite massive technological advances in healthcare, the average worker is no more efficient today than in 1990.  Transmission of data and communication is now instant. Why has healthcare not harnessed those technological advances to increase efficiency?
