@Maryam yes, if the project achieves its goals, the researchers will not only learn a lot more about heart disease, but people will learn how to better manage their own health. And, ultimately, they do hope to cut back on those emergencies.

 Ariella it sounds like great research and I do agree it will help patients and hospitals. Hopefully it will help reduce the overload many ERs have for patients with chronic illnesses and help impact the overall health of patients.

@tinym My sentiments exactly. People delude themselves into believing the lunch is free for them, assuming that the check will always be paid by someone else. It comes as a surprise to some that, they too, will be forced to pay for their own lunches -- and at premium prices, too.

@Ariella agreed! Whatever metric they're using is very wrong and they get a totally different government plan anyway. None of the healthcare stuff makes sense to me. It's as though this stuff was thought up like fiction and forced on the whole nation when it absolutely will not work out. If you can't pay for traditional insurance you certainly shouldn't be forced to contribute to a higher-priced government plan. Everyone will end up paying. There is no such thing as a free lunch, right? First rule of 12th grade economics...

@tinym Yes, you have to not only provide your own health history but offer what you know of your families. The role of genetics is one of the things they really want to investigate. 

I laughed at your " I wish there were an app to make lawmakers read these bills before signing off." How about an app to give them a reality check about real people's income,living expenses, and what businesses can afford?

@Ariella Ah, I forgot you didn't have smartphone.

Yeah, the new healthcare laws will force everyone to pay for insurance of some kind. My employer-supported plan went up ahead of the new requirement almost two years ago. We got a comparison chart of the existing plan and the new government plan - the government plan was going to cost a significant amount more. That was crazy. I wish there were an app to make lawmakers read these bills before signing off.

I want to sign up for the heart study but I'm actually a little worried about data breaches. The university will have a lot of personal info.

@tinym I didn't join. I don't use a smartphone, and the assumption in place for the apps is that the particpants do have one. 

Regarding the group that don't pay for insurance, as I understand it, they will be compelled to, regardless, under the new healthcare laws.

@Ariella I really enjoyed this post. The new face of healthcare assistance is ever-changing and fascinating. Thanks too for linking to the eHeart study. I think I might write about it too. Did you join the heart study?

You forgot the third group that can't afford to pay for insurance so they pay out of pocket a few times a year when they get really sick and have to go to a doctor. They don't want to use state-funded healthcare so they pay when the go instead of year 'round too.

Broadway, - Laughing at the whole concept of old-fashioned medical care. its interesting to think that some people actually pay for medical care out of pocket. considering how few they are though, i'm certain they will not dictate the trend in the future of medical care. They will be the outliers.
