“Why Monitor A Problem If You’re Not Going To Fix It?”
Lifelock, a personal credit monitoring company regularly uses this quote in their advertising. Lifelock differentiates itself from its competitors by accepting ACCOUNTABILITY and taking action to help RESOLVE potential credit fraud (rather than simply pointing out that fraud has been committed.)
If, as consumers we believe that professional assistance is important and should be used to RESOLVE serious problems (in this case, identity theft) why don’t we seem to care if our medical physicians are held to the same standard to RESOLVING “diseases?”
Is the medical model’s goal designed to maintain a “broken” situation?
Why are we more concerned about restoring our personal credit rating than restoring our personal HEALTH? Does it make sense we hold a company like Lifelock accountable to achieving RESOLUTION to credit fraud, but only hold our doctors accountable to the standard of MONITORING and MAINTAINING the diseases they diagnose?
