PHOENIX, March 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In their new book, Healthcare at a Turning Point, Dr. Rita Numerof and Michael Abrams examine the state of healthcare, why it is failing, and how to fix it.
In minutes, these experts can explain:
- The single most important factor driving healthcare inflation, and what successful reform of the system requires that's currently missing
- Why accountable care organizations are more likely to damage our healthcare system further than to result in lower costs or better quality
- What the implications of the current reform path are for healthcare innovation in the US
- What the unanticipated consequences of the current approach to reform are likely to look like
- Why a market-based approach to healthcare reform is the key to genuine change
Dr. Numerof and Mr. Abrams will be in Phoenix April 3, and are available for meetings and interviews.
