What You Can Do to Reform Healthcare

February 06, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 178

Uproot U.S. Healthcare: To Reform U.S. Healthcare was written by someone who should know how to reform the system. Deane Waldman, MD MBA is both a practicing physician, as a pediatric cardiologist, and a speaker on healthcare reform.

In Uproot U.S. Healthcare, Waldman engages the reader in more of a conversation than a lecture and at the end of the book, you should come away with a clear understanding of what will really save our healthcare system.

You'll discover that a cure for the currently sick system doesn't lie in the hands of the political system or even a money fix - but in each and every one of us who can and do vote. Uproot U.S. Healthcare was written specifically to inform U.S. citizens about how to make their votes count to cure our ailing system.

With all the books, blogs and talking heads who shout out opinions about how to fix our healthcare system, Waldman's book is a refreshing change. He has experienced the system first hand and has dealt with management and strategy issues within his own organization.

After experiencing the problems and seeing the results of a broken system, he realized that business knowledge and experience is a good way to understand the woes of the healthcare system and will also lead the way on how to eventually fix it.

Waldman wants the average U.S. citizen to understand that they simply can't wait for Washington to do something - we have to pull together and do it ourselves. Eventually, we'll all need the benefits of a healthcare system that really works, and the time is "now" to uproot the U.S. Healthcare system as it stands today and plant new, stronger roots.

Dr. Waldman devotes over half the pages in Uproot U.S. Healthcare to the "diagnosis" of the illness within our system before he actually addresses the "treatment." This is a logical method and one that all doctors tend to take with their human patients.

One truth that Waldman brings out in his book is that if we don't act now to fix the U.S. healthcare system, it won't be available in the future. If the current trend of rising costs, costly errors, a shortage of nurses and doctors, people who don't have and can't afford health insurance and lawsuits are allowed to continue, we'll never have a health care system that works.

The new roots of the healthcare system must be based on what the public wants - not what our misguided politicians want. Uproot U.S. Healthcare: To Reform U.S. Healthcare, by Deane Waldman, MD MBA, is an excellent and informative read and a real eye-opener to those who believe that the general public has no say about what happens to our healthcare system.
