The Opioid Crisis Wake-Up Call: Health Care Is Stealing the American Dream. Here's How We Take It Back.

Chase's message is this: resolving the opioid crisis, at the CEO, citizen, and community level, brings us miles closer to fixing the systemic failures of U. S. At the same time, we also need to turn off the enormous flow of people becoming addicted. Instead, driven by a catastrophically dysfunctional health care system, it's a self-inflicted wound, leading to what has become the largest public health crisis in 100 years.

. It's time to scale these solutions nationwide, stop the crisis in its tracks and move us light years closer to solving the larger disaster that is our health care system. As you read this, countless people are leaving clinics and hospitals with over 30-day supplies of opioids for lower back pain, and other diagnoses for which opioids have little evidence of helping.

. Only by traveling upstream to stop addiction before it starts will we ever clean up the opioid crisis--and prevent future floods of addiction.

An American Sickness: How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take It Back

Very quickly Americans have been made to accept paying more for less. In these troubled times, perhaps no institution has unraveled more quickly and more completely than American medicine. This is about what we can do, as individual patients, both to navigate the maze that is American healthcare and also to demand far-reaching reform.

An american sickness is the frontline defense against a healthcare system that no longer has our well-being at heart. Research charities are in bed with big pharmaceutical companies, which surreptitiously profit from the donations made by working people. Impossibly high insurance premiums and inexplicably large bills have become facts of life; fatalism has set in.

Why Nobody Believes the Numbers: Distinguishing Fact from Fiction in Population Health Management

Why nobody believes the numbers introduces a unique viewpoint to population health outcomes measurement:   Results/ROIs should be presented as they are, not as we wish they would be. This viewpoint contrasts sharply with vendor/promoter/consultant claims along two very important dimensions: 1     Why Nobody Believes presents outcomes/ROIs achievable right here on this very planet… 2   …calculated using actual data rather than controlled substances.

Indeed, nowhere in healthcare is it possible to find such sharply contrasting worldviews, methodologies, and grips on reality. Why nobody believes the numbers includes 12 case studies of vendors, carriers, and consultants who were apparently playing hooky the day their teacher covered fifth-grade math, as told by an author whose argument style can be so persuasive that he was once able to convince a resort to sell him a timeshare.

Used book in Good Condition. The book's lesson:  no need to believe what your vendor tells you -- instead you can estimate your own savings using “ingredients you already have in your kitchen. Don't be intimidated just because you lack a PhD in biostatistics, Bachelor's, or even a Masters, high-school equivalency diploma or up-to-date inspection sticker.

Why nobody believes the Numbers explains how to determine if the ROIs are real. And why they usually aren't.
