Political changes..or not.
If health care is effectively provides as some form of universal coverage then income and expense sheets can be balanced and cost controls can effectively put into place.

This is pretty much regardless of how it is done. However, pure provide motives on the bases of keeping people sick and in need of expensive intervention will have to be curtailed or even reversed completely.

Socially this means that the individual awareness has to be one of prevention, and health maintinnence..much the opposite of what is going on now.

Technological advances will mean naught if these other areas do not occur, as it will perpetuate the much disproven knowledge that our technology can always save us.
