Redefining Healthcare: Is the American System Broken?

Is the American healthcare system broken? Elizabeth Teisberg thinks so. In fact, it is estimated that over 400,000 Americans die each year … all as a result of the poor treatment they receive in hospitals. Teisberg is the co-author of the new book Redefining Healthcare. Not only does Teisberg think the system is broken, she thinks it can be fixed and ultimately cost less money than it does now while delivering much better results. Join “Books of Our Time” host Dean Lawrence R. Velvel as he sits down for one hour with Teisberg to discuss these vital issues. Teisberg is Associate Professor at the Darden Graduate School of Business at the University of Virginia. Join us as the program explores the disconnect between patient value and healthcare competition. Which doctors are the best? Which are the worst? How does the public find out? What steps can be taken to assure that you are receiving the best healthcare possible? All of these topics and more will be explored. The Massachusetts School of Law, located in Andover, Massachusetts, makes high quality, affordable legal education available to less privileged persons who are traditionally excluded from the legal profession.
