Every industry is being re-defined by COVID, including health care itself. As telemedicine surges and the issue of the appropriateness of medical care moves to the center stage, a new health care marketplace is being created. At the same time, the pre-covid trend for more relationship-based medicine is growing and consumers are seeking more price transparency when shopping for care. Makary offers a road-map for everyday Americans and business leaders to navigate a changing health care landscape and profiles the disruptors who are innovating exciting new models of care. He explains how medical science is showing that health care has been delivering too much care, some of which is dangerous, and discovering the role of healthy foods, the microbiome, and lifestyle changes in addressing chronic disease. The movement to restore medicine to its mission, Makary argues, is alive and well--a mission that can rebuild the public trust and save our country from the crushing cost of health care.

Learning Objectives

  • Review the latest medical literature on medical appropriateness and explore the budding movement to develop appropriateness measures for health care
  • Identify disruptive innovations in American business
  • Describe the new efforts aimed at improving medical quality through increasing transparency
  • Describe what to expect in the next 5 years in healthcare policy
