In the battle for U.S. health care, patients and doctors are losing.

Who Killed Health Care? shows how to win the war.

one of the nation's most respected health care analysts, regina herzlinger exposes the motives and methods of those who have crippled america's health care system-figures in the insurance, hospital, employment, governmental, and academic sectors. she proves how our current system, which is organized around payers and providers rather than the needs of its users, is dangerously eroding patient welfare and is pushing costs out of the reach of millions.

Who Killed Health Care? then outlines Herzlinger's bold new plan for a consumer-driven system that will deliver affordable, high-quality care to everyone. By putting insurance money in the hands of patients, removing the middleman in the doctor-patient relationship, and giving employers cost relief, consumers and physicians will be empowered to make the system work the way it should. Herzlinger describes in precise detail how her innovative program will provide

  • Smaller, disease-focused medical facilities that provide complete care for patients
  • A national system of medical records that provides privacy with confidential access by approved practitioners
  • Mandatory performance evaluations of all hospitals and all other medical organizations
  • Mandatory health insurance with subsidies for those who cannot afford it
Who Killed Health Care? is a call to arms that must be answered; the welfare of every American hangs in the balance.

a brilliant analysis a must-read. bill george, professor, harvard business school and former ceo of medtronic

as it becomes more and more obvious to everyone that our current health care system is unsustainable, this is the book that had to be written. daniel h. johnson, jr. md, former president of the american medical association

regina herzlingers ideas to tackle the crisis of the u.s. health care system are based on keen knowledge of the systems existing difficulties along with insights that introduce the reader to new streamlined choices that have the potential of getting both quantity and cost under control. joseph kennedy, founder, chairman, and president, citizens energy corporation, ceo, citizens health care, former representative (d-mass)

Regina Herzlinger offers a vision of the way things can be, should be, and will be sooner or later. The only question is: how long do we have to wait? Greg Scandlen, founder, Consumers for Health Choices

Regi Herzlinger has brilliantly articulated a better way embracing the principles of competition and innovation that cause every other sector of our economy to thrive. Discharging American health care from the ICU can only happen by putting individual Americans not politicians and bureaucrats back in charge of their health care decisioins. U.S. Senator Tom Coburn (R-Okla), M.D.

New York Post

"Regina Herzlinger's impressive and accessible Who Killed Health Care? offers insights that could lead to real progress. She sets forth a world in which insurance companies compete on quality, product design and disease management--not on ability to attract healthy consumers. Entrepreneurs would create integrated disease-management systems that profit from excellent and effective service, saving patients' time and providing coordinated care for all aspect of a condition."

The Economist

Mrs Herzlinger is America's leading advocate of market-driven, consumer-orientated health reform. She wants a national system which requires individuals to buy health insurance, with help in the form of tax breaks for all punters, and subsidies for the poorest. She wants insurance prices to be risk-adjusted and hospitals to be free to charge what they like so they can offer new services as the market demands. Most importantly, she wants the government to demand transparency of price and quality from this notoriously murky industry.-The Economist
