Two new resources this week.
In the first, McKinsey issues a major report (a 70 page report and 8 page summary) on administrative costs and potential solutions. Hint: The administrative burden is basically $1 Trillion Over ten years, that's $10 Trillion - triple the notorious current "infrastructure bill."
The McKinsey article is paired with a new, October 20, online companion article at JAMA - here.
If you're enjoying these, try also Cass Sunstein's new September 2021 book, "SLUDGE," about red tape, paperwork, and how sludge stops us all from getting things done. MIT Press. At Amazon here. It's only 168 pages, minimizing the administrative burden of actually reading it.
For a different view of admin burdens and health costs, see Valenti, 2015, here.
