The book presents this topic in a logical and readable way to give readers the information that they should have to make their own informed decisions about what they believe should be the future of healthcare in America.

Description

Healing American Healthcare makes the case for universal healthcare in the United States. The authors’ careers in our healthcare system have given them the expertise to suggest that as a nation we can provide care for all, while reducing our overall cost of care by $1 trillion per year. The book sets the stage for presenting its plan by reviewing how our healthcare system compares with other nations. It goes on to discuss the history of healthcare reform in the United States and the impact of Obamacare on the  uninsured in our country. The book discusses the high cost of pharmaceuticals, hospital care and healthcare insurance and the impact of our very bureaucratic system on doctors and patients. The authors put forth a plan that would reduce costs, improve quality and create the much needed competition to reduce bureaucracy, and clinical waste.  This plan would result in providing higher quality care and lower healthcare costs for all Americans. The book presents this topic in a logical and readable way to give readers the information that they should have to make their own informed decisions about what they believe should be the future of healthcare in America.
