Medical money-saver? (E-Buzz).

A newly formed Colorado Springs non-profit is working with the Air Force to distribute taxpayer-produced CDs, video-tapes and online instruction in medical procedures for free or as low a cost as possible to the patient.

John Bringenberg, executive director of Prorenata, the organization specifically formed to transfer the Air Force "technology" to the public, said the tapes and CDs were produced to serve the 2.7 million lives of Air Force personnel and their dependents. But officials decided those lives were not much different from other American lives, so the stuff should be shared.

From pregnancy to tonsillectomy to knee arthroscopy, the free distribution of the materials to corporations, health plans and physicians just might be able to cut the costs of health insurance. Do you think?
