 "Firstly, there is one simplism. That is, complicated matters that are mentioned above are left out and sometimes it is said as if providing "excessive treatment" represented the "nature of the medical service". However, that is not true. At least, it is only one aspect. As I mentioned in 2), the truth is that if the work stands on the side of medical services or enables its related persons to make a profit (if the word is not appropriate, we can state "payable"), all concerned try to keep the business. On the other hand, if it is loss-making, they do not run the business. If the situation changes into the latter one in which preserving medical services does not provide much profit, demands to protect them diminish. Actually I think that the situation has been changed dramatically and its gain has been minimized. I believe that the recent situation accounts for such a process. I should be able to prove that my guess is accurate".
