Narrator Neil Shah
Publisher: Tantor Audio
With technological advances and information sharing so prevalent, health care should be more transparent and easier to access than ever before. So why does it seem like everything about it—from pricing, drug development, and the emergence of new diseases to the intricacies of biologic and precision medicine therapies—is becoming more complex, not less?Rohit Khanna's Misunderstanding Health examines some of today's most revealing health care trends while imploring us to look at these issues with alacrity, humor, and vigilance. Over the course of eighteen short, engaging chapters, Khanna explains● how unexamined beliefs can endanger patients, drive cost, and increase bureaucracy● the "Dr. Google" effect on the ways that we seek (or eschew) care● why our health care costs more than in any other country● the unintended consequences of using rating sites like YelpEach provocative chapter covers a familiar aspect of health care in a clear and succinct way. Offering inquisitive listeners a warts-and-all view of American health care, Misunderstanding Health is the book that you'll want to listen to if you know enough to be frustrated by the system but want a deeper dive into its challenges and opportunities.
