We desperately need deregulation in medicine. It is hard to disagree with anything Dr. Hahn in the link below says about our regulatory nightmare, the need for reform and the chaos harmful state and federal regulations, insurance rules and the EMR mess create for all of us, doctors and patients alike. Deregulation is in part what some of us hoped the new Trump administration would do quickly, and it is in part what HHS Secretary Dr. Tom Price is trying to do by himself. His authority is limited however until and unless Congress acts. We should thank and encourage our friend Tom Price in his efforts and hope the Congress gets busy, perhaps in a bipartisan way.

Ps. Singapore has a functional system that could be adapted here to American values.
