While they are all intertwined, the egocentric behavior of payers, providers, employers, and governmental branches weighs down an already bloated system.  Each stakeholder seeks to achieve specific goals in the zero-sum pursuit of individual returns. This egocentricity continues to drive costs up at an unsustainable rate. Case and point, over …
