Although growth in national health spending has slowed since 1993, experts predict this trend will not last. Increasingly expensive technology is more widely used for diagnosis and treatment. An increasing percentage of the population is developing high maintenance, chronic illnesses. Cost containment solutions have offered only short term relief. Bowen theory’s concept of emotional process in society provides a template for interrelating the numerous factors that contribute to increasing health care costs. It suggests that a rising level of societal anxiety can generate short-term solutions and play a part in our failure to stem rising health care costs. Bowen theory offers a way of thinking that can point toward long-term solutions.
