Your doctor is not in: healthy skepticism about national health care
YOUR DOCTOR IS NOT IN: HEALTHY SKEPTICISM ABOUT NATIONAL HEALTH CARE adds fresh energy to the debate over the quality & availability of medical care in America. Jane M. Orient, M.D., rejects the liberal approaches to the problem - as implemented in England, Canada, Germany, & in American "managed care" systems - & proposes a free market-based national medical policy. From her perspective, there is already too much government involvement in medicine, too much regulation, & too much insurance - which is actually prepayment in disguise. These are not the root causes of the accelerating rise in fees & costs, the neglect of patients, & stagnation in the science of medicine itself. Dr. Orient's solutions are bold, thoughtful & based on her extensive experience as a practicing internist, teacher & executive. She says we must return power to its rightful holder, the patients; create true (not "managed") competition; & restore the primacy of the physician-patient relationship.
