We have become sophisticated consumers of cars, computers, clothes, and homes. Why not health care? That is the question noted entrepreneur and physician Dr Sreedhar Potarazu probes in this groundbreaking book. Who really pays for healthcare and how do we finally improve cost and quality? The answers he reveals are innovative, measured, market-tested and, if implemented, capable of revolutionising the American health care system. Some the country s leading employers have successfully adopted his principles. Having spent over 20 years on both sides of the health care cost equation, Dr Potarazu, whose credentials include an MBA from Johns Hopkins University, sounds a clarion call to action for anyone who pays for health care employer or employee: It is time to take control of the process and drive change throughout the health care system. Inside the book Dr Potarazu provides a series of cogent arguments that: Employers and employees working together can be a true catalyst for improving the cost and quality of health care; Greater transparency throughout the health care system will make it easier for consumers to understand how the system works; Improved technology can provide the transparency the system currently lacks and a new and improved health care system has the power to create not only a healthier America, but a more productive America, better able to compete in today s world economy. The new platform, Dr Potarazu introduces is buyer empowered, not consumer-directed, and relies on the interconnection of all health information on one technology platform to enable medical data to flow smoothly between all the links in the health care supply chain. Collaborative networks are the means by which the world communicates today and for the first time Dr Potarazu reveals how this same concept improves the cost and quality of healthcare in the hands of the buyer. With new concepts and detailed case studies, this book offers a compelling vision of health care the way it should be and could be if consumers and employers begin to work together.
