The Profit Motive Behind American Dialysis with Tom Mueller, Part 1


Investigative journalist Tom Mueller takes us on a journey through the murky waters of the American dialysis industry. His book, "How to Make a Killing: Blood, Death, and Dollars in American Medicine," serves as our map through this profit-driven labyrinth, where the health of 37 million Americans hangs in the balance. We peel back the layers of an industry that has transformed from a beacon of hope for those with kidney disease into a profit-centric behemoth, leaving patients and their delicate renal health in the wake of corporate gains. Mueller reveals dialysis as a microcosm of American medicine and poses a vital challenge: find a way to fix dialysis, and we’ll have a fighting chance of fixing our country’s dysfunctional healthcare system as a whole, restoring patients, not profits, as its true purpose.
