Shock Therapy for the American Health Care System libro in lingua di Levine Robert A.
 
Descrizione

A veteran physician offers an insider's perspective on problems in the present system for administering and paying for health care. His program of reform is more far-reaching than anything currently being proposed, and, he maintains, would provide universal coverage at no additional cost. Writing in accessible language for general readers, Levine, former chief of neurology at Norwalk Hospital and retired professor of medicine at Yale University, dispels common myths about health care reform, and reveals the roles of the various stakeholders in our current health care infrastructure: insurance companies, big pharma, hospitals, the medical device industry, health care providers, and patients. He identifies areas in the current system where huge savings could be realized, and backs up his proposals with facts and comparisons to systems in other countries. Tables and graphs provide summaries of data. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
