Health Care Reboot – Megatrends Energizing American Medicine – injects a much-needed dose of optimism into the national health care debate. The book makes a compelling case that a series of powerful trends are leading the nation’s health care system toward greater quality, safety, access, and affordability. The trends include historic breakthroughs in treatments for heart disease and cancer; integration of behavioral health services into primary care; recognizing and acting upon the broad effect of social determinants of health; consumer empowerment focused on measures and outcomes that matter most to patients; paying for value rather than volume causing doctors and hospitals to shift to a newly aggressive proactive approach to caring for patients. Collectively, these trends are rebooting our health care system to better serve the needs of providers, payers, and, most importantly, patients.
