The Future of Health-Care Delivery

The Future of Health-Care Delivery

Approximately 100,000 deaths per year in the United States result from preventable medical errors. This figure is about twice the number of people who die in car accidents and five times the number of murder victims annually, and twenty times the number of servicemen and women killed in Iraq and Afghanistan since the start of hostilities in 2001. If you think Americans have the best health-care system in the world, think again. In this deeply researched and controversial book, the author explains why our health-care delivery system serves us so poorly, why it costs so much, and why government policy over many decades has not only failed to improve care delivery but has actually made it worse. In the process, he dispels common misconceptions about medicine and health care. Timely information and a road map to achieve world-class care delivery are shown here - putting health care where it belongs - in the hands of the patient and medical professionals instead of the insurance companies and government.
