Oxymorons: The Myth of a U.S. Health Care System

Synopsis

In this impassioned and often vitriolic book _ a follow-up to the author's bestselling Bleeding Edge: The Business of Health Care in the New Century _ U.S. health care industry expert J.D. Kleinke offers an unflinching look at our broken health care system. Throughout the book, Kleinke-who was once a vocal advocate of the managed health care system-explains what went wrong and attempts to answer such perplexing questions as Who's in charge of the American health care system? How does managed care work . . . or not work? Why have hospitals become so complex? What are the prospects for reform? Does the Internet change anything? Can we solve the growing problem of the uninsured?
