We welcome Dr. Robert Pearl, the author of Mistreated: Why We Think We’re Getting Good Healthcare – and Why We’re Usually Wrong back to our Sunday morning conversation.
Dr. Pearl, former CEO of the Permanente Medical Group, the nation’s largest medical group, answers questions that concern us all –
- Why are prescription drugs so expensive?
- Did the Affordable Care Act help or hurt? Why didn’t it bend the cost curve?
- Would a government-run Single Payer Health Care System solve the problem?
Doctor Pearl will be joining us, again, in the next few weeks to discuss emerging new health care practices that can help to improve quality and reduce cost by focusing on the patient/consumer.
