Transforming Healthcare Together focuses on people and offers a fresh approach to a complicated system. The streamlined model of healthcare presented appeals to the everyday needs of all people.
The book endorses a model reliant upon trust and built on integrity, honesty, and confidence in the doctor-patient relationship. This focus restores the “soul” to healthcare - the idea that physicians genuinely care for the health and well-being of their patients. It demystifies the convolution of healthcare and makes it accessible to any reader. Speaking frankly about our broken system, Dr. Yeager creates an engaging conversation with readers characterized by expert knowledge, warmth, and candor.
Positioned as a faith-based approach, it seeks to reform the current healthcare system by reintroducing the value of community into the process. Its audience includes people who feel dissatisfied with their current healthcare system as well as experienced physicians wrestling with cynicism and crumbling under the weight of an overly complex system. It fosters a sense of optimism in patients by providing an alternative to the current system of healthcare. It taps into the desire to be part of a community, meeting the needs to be recognized, known, and cared for. It encourages physicians to improve relationships with their patients and rediscover the reasons they decided to practice medicine while restoring joy in their profession and re-discovering the reward of service through healing. It challenges pastors to teach a biblical understanding of care of the body as well as model how the church is far more capable of completing this task than third-party commercial insurers.
Transforming Healthcare Together promises to be a catalyst for change and transformation. Using examples from his own trailblazing model, Dr. Yeager remains convinced and hopeful that change is possible. As individuals become empowered in their own healthcare, they are positioned to create lasing change in their families, their places of business, their churches, and their communities.
