Power and money are holding our health care hostage. To ransom it will take courage to face the death spiral of the current system. Slaves to Medicine is an urgent call to reform with a solution to prevent collapse on a large scale. The mistaken notion that the medical relationship between a caregiver and patient is primarily a financial transaction has led to the slaves to medicine state. Slaves to Medicine: How to Ransom Your Health Care from Power & Money identifies how everyone touched by health care, or the lack of it, must participate responsibly in a solution. Change should spring from a belief that preserving health and providing health care is necessary for our society, our economy, and our morality. Slaves to Medicine leads the way to a practical solution.
