Proponents of the healthcare reform agenda continually compare per capita healthcare spending in the United States to other nations and cite this as one of the clear mandates for healthcare reform. The purpose of this article is to draw attention to the cost of geographic distribution strategies adopted by healthcare organizations and the impact this has on per capita healthcare costs. It is important to quantify the cost of such strategies and to weigh their merits, if the intent is to substantially reduce the cost of healthcare in the United States.
