Book Description

8 April 2014 Wildavsky Forum Series (Book 9)
In the United States, the soaring cost of health care has become an economic drag and a political flashpoint. Moreover, although the country's medical spending is higher than that of any other nation, health outcomes are no better than elsewhere, and in some cases are even worse. In The Quality Cure, renowned health care economist and former Obama advisor David Cutler offers an accessible and incisive account of the issues and their causes, as well as a road map for the future of health care reform--one that shows how information technology, realigned payment systems, and value-focused organizations together have the power to resolve this seemingly intractable problem and transform the US health care system into one that is affordable, efficient, and effective.

5.0 out of 5 stars You cannot sensibly discuss or debate the health care issues facing America if you haven't read this book. 18 July 2014
By Paul Levy - Published on
David Cutler has observed more about the health care system than most people in the world, and in this book he offers a sensible framework and prescriptions to help us deliver the kind of care we would want at a price we would want to pay. This is no ideological screed: It is a thoughtful and interesting analysis that transcends political boundaries. We would be a lot better off if we accomplished even 10% of what he suggests. A must-read for health professionals but also for citizens who want to have a sense that things can work better if we set our minds to it.
