This book is for ANYONE concerned about this topic. It's written in simple, plain English that anyone can follow and is well organized. The first chapter summarizes the benefits for patients/consumers, healthcare professionals, hospitals, businesses, government, private insurance companies, and public health agencies, and explains the EMBRACE plan. Each chapter that follows focuses on explaining the benefits of the plan and how it would work for each audience (patients/consumers, healthcare professionals, etc.). And an Epilogue discusses how we could make EMBRACE a reality.
Read this book to once again feel that we could indeed fix our broken healthcare system!
E.g., the politics of finding a way that congress can pass such a law; or the unrelenting and continuously hampering interventions by the pharmaceutical companies’ lobbies. And those are just two examples.
All in all it is a thorough and well-presented health plan for the USA. There is even a glossary at the end of the book for the newly introduced acronyms (EMBRACE, HIP, NMB, UBF) which comes in handy while reading.
