This book explains why American Medicine is an unsustainable administrative monstrosity and it exposes shocking problems from the perspective of patients and physicians. It explains how simple changes would improve quality, provide coverage for all Americans, fund pharmacy coverage and leave $Billions left over, all by simplifying and uniformly applying systems in use today. This is a refreshing change from the usual political view of the failures of managed care.

American medicine staggers under the combined burdons of overwhelming costs and the desire for state-of-the-art healthcare for all Americans. We can have all of that and simultaneously reduce the cost. We need to simplify and unify healthcare administration with one fair and straightforward system nationwide. We need to use a uniform system of accounting for fees, utilization rates and quality with tools now used in such a fragmented way that we have never realized the benefits that they can produce. With that, we can restore the compassion and efficiency that American Medicine has lost under the present mismanagement of healthcare. And simultaneously, we can return healthcare decision making to patients and doctors.From the Author:
Economist Henry Aaron found American Medicine an "administrative monstrosity." The GAO reported that it is unsustainable in its present form. The need for change is well documented. We need to simplify and unify systems and in so doing reduce administrative costs. In the process, we not only free up funds to cover the uninsured and pay for medicines, but we improve quality and efficiency in healthcare.
