DENVER, Sept. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Halee Fischer-Wright, President and CEO of MGMA, the association that represents almost half the healthcare delivered in the United States with membership of more than 40,000 health care professionals, has written a new book about the state of the American health care system. In BACK TO BALANCE: The Art, Science, and Business of Medicine, which is being published today by Disruption Books, Dr. Fischer-Wright asserts, "We have lost our focus on strengthening the one thing that has always produced healthier patients, happier doctors, and better results: namely, strong relationships between patients and physicians, informed by smart science and enabled by good business."
To present a bold new vision for transforming the practice of medicine, Dr. Fischer-Wright draws on decades of research, personal stories, and the successes of cutting edge medical practices. Based on this extensive groundwork, she lays out five paradigm shifts that must be made to move American health care past the mediocrity we are settling for today if we want to achieve excellence once again.
James L. Madera, M.D., CEO of the American Medical Association calls BACK TO BALANCE: "A highly personal account, conveyed through storytelling that is both effective and accessible . . . an insightful and delightful read describing the critical need for enhancing the art of medicine in providing health care to the nation."
Dr. Fischer-Wright is a nationally recognized physician leader, healthcare executive, and former business consultant, whose work focuses on innovation and creating cultures of excellence. Prior to assuming her current role at MGMA, she was a practicing physician, management consultant in multiple industries, president of Rose Medical Group, and chief medical officer within Centura Health. She is the recipient of multiple national awards for leadership in innovation, healthcare, business, and womenʼs leadership.
