Dr. David Hyman, co-author of “Overcharged: Why Americans Pay Too Much for Healthcare,” offers proposals for how to overhaul a costly and inefficient health care system.

Why is Medicaid a misguided solution for providing health care to the disadvantaged? Why do drugs cost so much? How do medical specialty societies guard their turf? How will Dr. Hyman’s proposed reforms expand choice and make medicine more affordable? Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: The Third Leading Cause of Death in America: Medical Errors, Part 1
July 30, 2020
To Err is Human” is the title of a documentary by writer/director/producer Mike Eisenberg. Medical mistakes are estimated to cause as many as 440,000 avoidable deaths in the U.S. each year—making them the #3 leading cause of death, trailing heart disease and cancer.

What lessons can be learned from industries that have successfully undertaken accident prevention programs? How can something as simple as routine hand washing by medical personnel reduce unnecessary infections? Why is the current malpractice system an imperfect deterrent to mistakes? Why should doctors be schooled in admitting errors? What role can patients and their advocates play in curbing this epidemic? How can transparency help eliminate errors? Can technology be harnessed to pre-empt procedural lapses? Click HERE for part 2.
