B – Mandatory Health

Takeuchi Cullen L. Mandatory Health. Time, March, 2008

Among the ten revolutionary ideas that will change how the world works, Time includes “Mandatory Health”. The article appearing in Time, reviews the story of healthcare in America, citing an article from the New England Journal of Medicine, and suggests that soon the boss may tell employees to get healthy, or get lost. Considering that some bosses are already screening job applicants, the article hints also that in a not too distant future they will also ask for a a clean bill of health.
