Crisis in U.S. Health Care: Corporate Power vs. The Common Good

FRIDAY HARBOR, Wash., March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The problems of U.S. health care are of intense public interest today. The debate over where to go next to rein in costs and improve access to quality health care has become bitterly partisan, with distorted rhetoric largely uninformed by history, evidence, or health policy science. Based on present trends, our expensive dysfunctional system threatens patients, families, the government, and taxpayers with future bankruptcy.

This book takes a 60-year view of our health care system, from 1956 to 2016, from the perspective of a family physician who has lived through these years as a practitioner in two rural communities, a professor and administrator of family medicine in medical schools, a journal editor for 30 years, and a researcher and writer on health care for more than four decades.

This is an objective, non-partisan look at the major trends changing U.S. health care over these years, ranging from increasing technology and uncontrollable costs to depersonalization and changing ethics in medicine and health care. It also compares the three basic alternatives for health care reform currently being debated. This book is up-to-date on the current political debate over the three basic ways to reform our health care system: (1) Continuation of the A.C.A. (Obamacare); (2) Repeal and replacement of the A.C.A. by the GOP's American Health Care Act (AHCA); and (3) Single Payer National Health Insurance or Medicare for All.

"John Geyman has written an expert and highly readable account of the American health care system--how in the past 60 years it changed from a system devoted to caring for patients to one devoted to maximizing revenues--and he tells us clearly how to fix it."

--Marcia Angell, M.D., former editor of The New England Journal of Medicine and author of The Truth About Drug Companies: How They Deceive Us and What We Can Do About It
