Donald J. Palmisano, MD, JD., on My Book

Preface: Dr. Donald J. Palmisano, former AMA president and author of On Leadership, is widely regarded by fellow physicians as the leading spokesperson for physicians in private practice and for their economic freedom from heavy-handed government intervention. He opposes the Patient Protection and Affordability Act (PPACA). I want to thank him for this mention of my book in DJP Update, his blog.

I want to inform you of a new book on the healthcare law. I had the opportunity to read it before it was published and I wrote a blurb about it as did many other individuals.

Book: The Health Reform Maze: A Blueprint for Physician Practices.
Author: Richard L. Reece, MD
Publisher: Greenbranch Publishing

Comment from Publisher including ordering information:
This is your roadmap for health reform to date. Although clear exits and destinations remain murky, Dr. Reece has managed to create a statistically entertaining map for health reform. The Health Reform Maze: A Blueprint for Physician Practices contains many entries that Dr. Reece has composed over the last four years on his Medinnovation blog.

What makes this book so unique is Dr. Reece's keen insight and understanding of both physicians' and patients' value system. "When it comes to trying to understand the current healthcare reform, this book covers it all in easily understandable language," says Nancy Collins, President of Greenbranch Publishing and Publisher of the Journal of Medical Practice Management®. "Dr. Reece approaches the unclear issue from the patient and the physician perspectives while still managing to stay compelling, engaging, and even entertaining." This book, ideal for practice managers, physicians, medical directors, insurers, policy makers, and even business school and health manager programs alike, is a must-read when trying to tackle the questions surrounding health reform.

Dr. Reece's book The Health Reform Maze: A Blueprint for Physicians Practices contains blog entries that deliver comprehensive but easy to read discussions concerning the uncertainty, the threat of lower reimbursements, and what practices can do in response to reform. The entry format allows the reader to even pick and choose from the sections without having to read straight through. Dr. Reece delivers a balanced (and less judgmental) overview of the reform. This book breaks the trend of specialized, narrow healthcare reform reports. Because of its multiple points of view and various perspectives, it tells you everything you may want to know about health care reform but were afraid to ask.

$48.50 plus $9.95 for S&H, ISBN 978-0-9827055-4-4, pages © 2011

Here is my blurb/review.


"This is a must read collection of essays that gives the good, the bad, and the ugly of the new healthcare law, PPACA. Dr. Reece shares a balanced presentation of proponents and opponents of the law and gives hope for a better way to reform the system."
Donald J. Palmisano, MD, JD, FACS, Former president of American Medical Association, and author of On Leadership
