Hidden Healthcare Spend: Lack of Sleep?

Insomnia is no small health issue, in terms of both quantitative and qualitative costs incurred.

This bit of research is feeling personally relevant... navigating the discussion on genome sequencing at today's DHS workshop on 4 hours of sleep is no simple matter...

If we spend an average of approx. $7,500 per person on healthcare annually in the U.S. and chronic insomnia is capable of upping that cost by over 3k - isn't it about time to seriously consider federally mandating daily siesta breaks?

Sounds like it's time for another cup of coffee...
