Good question. Are you sure the "electorate is not ready for a single payer system"? or could it be that the pharmaceutical industry, hospitals, nursing homes, HCPs, etc do not want a single payer system and work their hardest to create a perception the public is not ready for a single payer system? Polling data shows the public likes Medicare ("* More than seven in 10 suburban residents say they favor cutting federal spending in general. But when you get specific, 87 percent oppose cutting Social Security and Medicare benefits. And 65 percent support increasing government spending on infrastructure and public works projects". https://www.hofstra.edu/pdf/academics/css/ncss_2012_ncsspoll.pdf)
Perhaps we should push for Medicare beginning at age 50. And then slowly move to Medicare for all. My answer to your question is for all fact and truth based people to work towards electing a congress and senate that will make rational, data driven decisions...... OK so maybe that is delusional to think that might happen...... Medicare has an overhead of 3%, many estimate private insurers have an overhead of 15%. This article cites a saving of $350 billion yearly by changing the way we finance healthcare in the US. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4283267/

Yes, Art, rid us of Fee for Service and all the expensive bureaucracy that goes with.
But if the pharmaceutical industry, hospitals, nursing homes, HCPs, etc. all make fair to good money and the electorate is not ready for a single payer system, how do we put patients back into the the front row seats?

First step is to rid ourselves of fee for service medicine and then the EHR will begin to improve.
