The National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU) is holding its latest annual convention in the Wynn Las Vegas, a resort that looks as if it was designed by the forces that designed the U.S. health care system.
Like the U.S. health care system, the Wynn is big, expensive and does important work.
You can hold a meeting there, get married, gamble your life savings away at the baccarat or poker tables, swim, or get a cup of coffee or a meal.
What you can’t easily do at the Wynn is figure out where the heck you are.
It’s easy to figure out how to get to the bars, the slot machines and the blackjack tables, but not too easy to get anywhere else.
There are signs overhead that seem to hint at what might be at the end of the long, long corridor but aren’t particularly comprehensive or aimed at directing me to the resort facilities that I (a hard-working insurance reporter who’s not here to gamble or get married) want to find, such as the place that sells coffee.
The Wynn provides a printed brochure with a map, but it’s not all that easy for me, a user who’s new to the resort, to figure where I am on the map.
