Health Guardianship: The Remedy to the Sick Care System

America’s healthcare system is the most expensive in the world, but more money hasn’t equated to better outcomes. What’s worse, medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S. Why are we spending so much but getting so little? In Health Guardianship, surgeon-scientist Firouz Daneshgari provides an unflinching exploration into the systemic dysfunction caused (primarily) by America’s fee-for-service healthcare model. Procedures and surgeries generate revenue; healthy people don’t. Health Guardianship offers a proactive solution that creates more reasonably priced, accessible, equitable healthcare for everyone.
