    Your story into primary care and the use of the Medical Home Model is right on the next big issue of healthcare reform- Workforce preparation. As millions of Americans enter the health care system we all must look at the workforce issue closely. I have done some research into the Medical Home Model and believe the use of advanced practice nurses such as Nurse Practitioners (NP) and Doctoral Nurse Practitioners ( DNP) are part of the solution and needs to be addressed. A collaborative practice of both advanced practice nurses and primary care physicians working as a team of primary care providers is the best method to assure the chronically ill are taken care of. As a 30 year practicing RN and a current nursing student obtaining an advanced degree in nursing business and health systems at the University of Michigan, my fellow nurses and I welcome the challenges before us and will work to assure quality care is delivered to all in need.

    I was listening to Dr. Sanders and I believe that a lot of people including the President think that people out of work with no income or resources are able to get healthcare through Medicade. In the State of Missouri you do not, unless you are a single parent with children. I think that there should be a standard that all states should have to meet in order to provide this assistance to everyone that does not have an income. It seems as some states provide Medicaid for everyone that meets income guidlines but not Missouri

    Regards to your health care: President Obama has done a great task in opening up your health care for all. In Canada it may not be perfect, but it works and needs to be retuned as time goes on.
    If I am not correct one of the top reasons for bankruptcy is medical bills; all should have care.

    Please give the system a chance; your people need it ! Look at Wall Street then look at your health insurers; they look the same.

    I fully support the capitalist system, however every individual should have access to medical care, this is our moral responsibilty.

    In Closing, many talked about one our premeirs going for heart surgery in the US, well didn't Mr Beckham go to Sweden for surgery?

    Canada may not be perfect, but look at our stats; bankruptcy, medical,guns and murder rates.

    Good luck you made the right decision

    I missed the part about nurses helping to resolve the healthcare reform crunch in primary care. Nurses have become the mainstay of many primary care as well as inpatient care settings.

    I do not fill that Health Care reform will hurt the doctors because the more patients they have the more money they make I am in the health Care field and believe me when i tell you that i am a happy camper.
