What’s Upfront in My New Book: The Physicians Foundation – A New Voice for Physicians
Up-Front – Frank or straightforward
January 26, 2013 -  I’ll be frank.  I’m writing this because my new book is coming out next week. The book will be 400 pages and will sell for $22.50. In essence, it is the history of the Physicians Foundation since 2003, when it was founded, until the present.
Here, up-front,  is the  upfront section of the book.
Dedication Page
Dedication: To Tim Norbeck, Lou Goodman, and Walker Ray who mobilized the doctors and helped found the Physicians Foundation, and to Phillip Miller of Merritt Hawkins, who helped articulate and define doctors dilemmas under Obamacare
Quotation Page
Draw your chair up close to the edge of the precipice and I’ll tell you a story.
Francis Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940),  The Great Gatsby (1925)
This is the second of a series of books on health reform. These  books are based on blog posts I have written over the last 5 years in my Medinnovation blog. The first book was Physicians, Parodies & Poems.
This series of books will consist of revised daily posts or fragments of those posts.
The first book contains poems that appeared as posts, at the beginning or the tail end of posts.

The other books that will follow will include posts on these subjects, not necessarily in this order:

American Culture and Physician Culture


Medicare and Medicaid

Patient-centered care

Surveys of U.S. physicians

Primary care and specialty care

Book reviews on health reform

Accountable Care Organizations

Medical innovation

Electronic Records and Information Technologies

Malpractice and tort reform
