Summary

Dr. Doug Peredniareveals how government and insurance company-created complexity is tearing apart the U.S. healthcare system and presents a new model for healthcare reform that will actually work. Leading physician, healthcare expert, and entrepreneur Perednia identifies specific inefficiencies and worthless administrative overhead that is making healthcare inaccessible or unaffordable for millions, driving providers from practice, and adding over half a trillion dollars annually to healthcare spending. Next, he shows how to design a far simpler system: one that delivers care to everyone by drawing on the best of both market efficiency and public "universality." Recent "health care reform" involved 2,000+ pages of complex, special interest-friendly legislation--including 168 new federal committees, program cuts, and higher taxpayer costs. Perednia offers a better way: a logical, comprehensive, and non-partisan and apolitical approach that gives providers and their patients more medical and financial security, enhances competition, would save some $570 billion annually--and still gives individual patients real freedom. This plan isn't wishful thinking: Overhauling America’s Healthcare Machine backs it up with detailed logic and objective calculations. Even after the recent endless debate about healthcare, the system is still broken--and unless it's fixed, it will break us all. Perednia shows how to finally fix it: once and for all.

From the Back Cover

“Finally, a healthcare system that works! Overhauling America’s Healthcare Machine is a superbly written book on what it takes to reduce administrative bloat, simplify the system, slash costs, and give all Americans sustainable medical and financial security.”

–William Bernstein, Bestselling author of A Splendid Exchange and The Birth of Plenty

“Scholarly both in thinking and writing. A terrific accomplishment.”

–Dr. Donald A.B. Lindberg, Director, National Library of Medicine

Bureaucratic complexity is smothering America’s healthcare system–pointless, costly, wasteful complexity created by both the government and insurance companies. In Overhauling America’s Healthcare Machine, leading physician, healthcare expert, and entrepreneur Douglas A. Perednia, M.D., systematically identifies worthless overhead that is making healthcare inaccessible to millions, driving providers from practice, and bankrupting America. Then, he shows how to design a far simpler system that delivers care to everyone by drawing on the best of both free markets and carefully crafted public initiatives.

The Obama “healthcare reform” involved more than 2,000 pages of special interest-friendly legislation. It mandates 168 new federal committees and programs, which reflects even higher healthcare spending and billions in new taxes. Yet, the system is still utterly broken–and unless it’s fixed, it will break us all. Perednia offers a better way: a logical, comprehensive, and nonpartisan approach that gives providers and patients both security and freedom, enhances competition, and will save more than $570 billion each year.
