A Roadmap for Health Reform to Date

This book delivers comprehensive, but easy to read discussions concerning the uncertainty, the threat of lower reimbursements, and what practices can do in response to reform.

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.

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.

The book stresses that physicians and patients must work together more closely to build a more personal, patient-centered system without massive interventions by third parties.

Dr. Reece has gathered his writings into a readable and sometimes humorous compilation of fact, fiction, and anecdote that helps us to understand the turmoil our healthcare system will be experiencing over the next decade. His blog entries trace the evolution of the new law and what people say, think, and may do about its octopus-like reach. I recommend this book to anyone interested in their own healthcare and our evolving healthcare system." Lou Goodman, PhD, CEO, Texas Medical Association
