JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Apr. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Nationwide debates about health care in America are amplifying during this election season, but the conversation is often frustratingly complex and overly politically-driven. Meanwhile, many American families are struggling physically, financially, and emotionally at the hands of a system they do not fully understand.
In light of this, there has perhaps never been a better time for a concise book that clearly, honestly, and effectively lays out our health care system's problems and innovative solutions. N. F. Hanna's Dying of Health Care is exactly that book.
Authored by a Florida primary care physician with nearly 40 years of experience practicing medicine in the United States and the United Kingdom, Dying of Health Care provides an easy-to-understand examination of the U.S. health care system's major flaws and potential remedies. The central focus of Dr. Hanna's book is the troubling question facing us today: why are Americans paying much more per person for health care than those in other developed nations, but getting much less in terms of quality and access?
Approaching this paradox through a clinician's eyes, Dr. Hanna first makes a careful diagnosis and then prescribes an appropriate treatment to heal our system. He shares real-life patient stories and provides insights into the minds of doctors, including how their decisions influence the costs and outcomes of treatments. He offers his up-close view of how the system harms us physically and financially, and he offers inventive solutions that can work to create the quality, affordable system to which we aspire. As his book argues, many of the ideas that can improve the quality of the system will actually reduce the cost as well.
Due to its clarity and insight, Dying of Health Care has been met with strong early reviews from leading national experts on health care, public policy, medical ethics, and the history of medicine. John Abramson, M.D., MSc, lecturer at Harvard Medical School and author of Overdosed America: The Broken Promise of American Medicine, stated, "…Americans simply cannot afford to ignore the ideas so clearly presented in this book." And in his review of the work, Philip Caper, M.D., past Chairman of the National Council on Health Planning and Development, argued that all Americans should take the time to read this important work:
"…This book is a must-read for anybody who has been, is, or will be a patient. That's just about all of us."
