Ms. Gaines talks about the health care system's historic cultivation of, and reliance upon, the passivity of patients. (Even the name "patient" suggests waiting, which is something we do a lot of...)  If, as a smart person once said, "every system is perfectly designed to get the results it gets," then our system is designed to get dependent, passive patients as opposed to activated, engaged, responsible consumers.  How will patients become consumers? How will our health care providers and the complex payment system adjust to this transformation?  What role must teachers play to ready students for the multiple, varied roles they will play?
