Doing It Right for Half the Cost with Healthcare Beyond Reform Now Available from Productivity Press

Healthcare Beyond Reform: Doing It Right For Half The Cost shows you how the system works. It explains how we got here, why we pay so much more than anyone else, and why we don’t get what we pay for.
May 7, 2012 - PRLog -- There is a secret inside healthcare, and it’s this: We can do healthcare for a lot less money. The only way to do that is to do it a lot better. We know it’s possible because it is happening now. In pockets and branches across healthcare, people are receiving better healthcare for a lot less. Some employers, states, tribes, and health systems are doing healthcare a little differently.

Healthcare Beyond Reform: Doing It Right for Half the Cost explains how this new kind of healthcare is not about rationing and cutbacks. It’s not about getting less, it’s about getting more. Getting better and friendlier healthcare, where you need it, when you need it.

How? The answer is mostly not in Washington, it’s not conservative or liberal. The answer is mostly not about who pays for healthcare. The answer is mostly about who gets paid, and what we pay them for.

Healthcare Beyond Reform: Doing It Right For Half The Cost shows you how the system works. It explains how we got here, why we pay so much more than anyone else, and why we don’t get what we pay for.

You’ll learn the five things healthcare can do to turn this around. You will see what some employers are already doing to make that happen, and what patients, families, doctors, and anyone else who cares about healthcare can do to help make it happen.

There are only five and we need all five. All of them can be done right now, with the current healthcare system as it is. Joe Flower shows you how.

In 1980, healthcare took no more of a bite out of the U.S. economy than it did in other developed countries. By 2000, healthcare cost twice as much in the U.S. as in most other developed countries. We can change that.
—Joe Flower

Praise For Healthcare Beyond Reform: Doing It Right for Half the Cost

Joe Flower provides us all with reason for hope for the future of healthcare that we can make it better, faster, and cheaper no matter what happens in Washington or the state capitals.

Flower has done a terrific job. This book truly needs to be read by the entire healthcare industry. In fact, this book is a must read for anyone even remotely associated with healthcare. Because it really can be done better for half the cost, the impact of this book will not only benefit Americans everywhere, but bless the lives of generations to come.
—Darrell Moon, healthcare consultant and CEO of Orriant

Joe Flower’s optimism is in scarce supply these days, and it may be the most compelling reason to read his book. Flower believes a lot of our health system’s problems can actually be solved, and not by people in Washington, but rather people on the front lines. Worth reading.

Joe Flower has produced a realistic blueprint for aligning America's medical marketplace with today's clinical, economic, and political realities. This book meets the need for a new and better approach to reform.
