Healing Our Health Care System

Leonard Abramson, Author Grove/Atlantic $18.95 (142p) ISBN 978-0-8021-1257-6
The mismanagement and greed of many medical industry movers and shakers are responsible for our inefficient, costly, dehumanizing, high-tech health care system, contends Abramson, founder and chairman of U.S. Healthcare Inc., a health maintenance company. Citing his own HMO as a model in this astute, succinct, occasionally self-serving survey, the entrepreneurial author asserts that the burden of reform of our medical system should be shared by government and business, preferrably within a competitive marketplace, and then carefully monitored to assure fair value for the health-care dollar.
