Description
The American healthcare system is terminally ill, astonishingly expensive, remarkably variable in quality and incapable of stemming the rising tide of chronic illnesses in our population. This book strips away the elaborately constructed myths that conceal the ugly underbelly of healthcare and lays bare the truth about an industry that serves special interest groups far better than it serves its patients. Just as the Affordable Care Act begins to change the healthcare landscape, Leifer offers a survival guide for anyone entering the healthcare system.
