About this title


Health is so fragile and fleeting and its value to the quality of our time on this earth is undeniable. Anything that worsens the health care delivery system harms us all, no matter our political stripe or ideology. Viewing the problems impacting our society through the narrowed lens of a dogmatic belief structure will not lead to pragmatic, effective solutions. Unfortunately, too much political noise and gamesmanship have clouded proper evaluation of the issues that are preventing our health care system from delivering cost-effective, high-quality health care that is readily accessible to all. The citizens of this society lose each time a decision is made and policy is implemented based upon the manipulation of fact to fit into a fixed system of political thought. Physicians practice what is called “evidence-based medicine,” which means that the diagnosis and treatment of a medical condition is based upon research studies and historical data. When a disease process arises, it is the science of medicine properly applied that promotes a greater chance of cure. Doesn’t it make sense to cure the “disease” within the health care system in the same manner that we cure the illnesses of our patients? In his book, Stop the Noise: A Physician’s Quest to Silence Politics of Health Care Reform, Dr. Brian E. Hill follows an evidence-based approach to ascertain the disease and define the structural issue inhibiting the ability of our health care system to deliver cost-efficient, high-quality care. Dr. Hill uses research studies along with current societal models (the Massachusetts health care reform as a proxy for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act passed in March 2010 and the state of Indiana for health care consumerism), breaking down the outcome data and determining whether the current law meets our goals or whether more effective models exist. This is not a political book filled with rhetoric or ideology or partisan talking points. It does not deride, name call, or target one political party over another. In utilizing this evidence-based concept, Dr. Hill has found that the current legislation falls woefully short of the stated goals of reform while an alternative ideal, health care consumerism, provides a more effective framework to decrease cost, increase access and improve the health of our citizenry.
