The Healthcare Labyrinth: Available Now
Not just a comprehensive guide to navigating health plans, The Healthcare Labyrinth offers a blueprint for fixing our broken healthcare system.
America’s healthcare system is undeniably unique. It is the only predominantly employer-based healthcare system in the developed world and, as a result, a patchwork system has emerged that suffers from three major issues:
- Price: Due to out-of-control prices, we spend more on healthcare than any other developed nation, yet America’s overall healthcare outcomes and results are among the worst.
- Lack of prevention focus: An obsession with utilization management instead of care management, wellness, and prevention.
- Gaps in coverage: A lack of commitment to affordable universal access, which could save money and improve quality if implemented correctly.
The Healthcare Labyrinth illustrates all the issues confronting America’s healthcare system and what we can do about it. Readers will learn how to navigate our current system and gain insight into the future of care. They’ll also discover how we can build affordable, universal access to quality healthcare for all Americans, reduce costs, and right the healthcare ship of state.
