Beyond the Medical Meltdown: Working Together for Sustainable Health Care
Gives readers an in depth look into where we are in the early twenty-first century and what can be done to transform health care in America so it is both affordable and available to all.
In Beyond the Medical Meltdown, Dr. Zieve contends that health care today is a manipulated market, not a free market. It is neither effective nor affordable for the average American. In both the public sector and with private businesses, it is a top down, over-controlled system that warrants immediate change. This change starts with building economic associations of patients, practitioners, and middlemen so that the relationship among these parties shifts from its current combative and competitive environment to one of collaboration.
In Beyond the Medical Meltdown, Dr. Zieve goes into how we can make these changes for local and nationwide communities and businesses by forming associations where patients, practitioners and third parties cooperate to create fair prices and comprehensive care for everyone.
Beyond the Medical Meltdown is a natural evolution of Dr. Zieve’s groundbreaking first book, Healthy Medicine: A Guide to the Emergence of Sensible Comprehensive Care by Bell Pond Books, New York, NY.
