The health-care system can be pretty annoying. Long waits, endless tests, big bills — these can rattle your nerves and raise your blood pressure while you're trying to take care of your health.

WHYY's health and science team is discussing the issue in an occasional series called "Pain in the Neck."

On this week's newsmagazine special "First Extra: Health + Technology," NewsWorks cartoonist Rob Tornoe gives his take.

We're always looking for new annoyances — and solutions — to feature in the next segment.

A version of this story will air on a WHYY-TV First Extra: Health + Technology. The half-hour special explores the ways tech innovations are driving medicine and airs at 5:30 p.m. on March 28 on WHYY-TV. It will be re-broadcasted on April 2 at 7:30 p.m.
