Anyone who disbelieves the American healthcare delivery and payment systems are terminally ill has never been sick themselves. American medical technology is arguably the best in the world, unfortunately the systems that bring it to the consumers are flawed.
The author uses government and industry statistics and facts to prove it. If facts and figures were not enough to get his point across, he presents heartbreaking personal anecdotes of patients throughout the country who have been victims of the American medical mess.
In Chapter 1, the author points out:
* American healthcare costs more per citizen than it does in any other country in the world. Switzerland comes in second, spending 50% less per capita than the USA.
* The infant mortality rate in the USA is two times that of Japan, Sweden and Norway.
* The USA has a lower life expectancy rate than Japan, France Canada or Germany.
* Annually, the USA has a higher percentage of people die from diabetes than any other developed nation in the world.
THE SYSTEM NOT ONLY IS BROKEN, IT IS BEYOND REPAIR. WE NEED A NEW ONE!
