VALUE: Americans are lousy patients

Could the problem with America’s health-care system lie not only with the American system but with American patients?”

Americans do not take prescribed medications.  We make poor lifestyle choices.  We demand expensive tests and scans and procedures.  All of these factors contribute to making the American health care system costly while failing to produce very good outcomes, compared to other developed nations.
