)-- Outskirts Press author Dr. John Hayes, Jr. offers a unique view on managed healthcare and offers solutions to providing better care – from a physician’s perspective. His new book, Living and Practicing…by Design; Saving the Hearts that Care for Our Lives, takes a hard look at how managed care greatly benefits CEOs of insurance companies but often destroys the livelihoods and societal benefits of truly excellent physicians from all disciplines. The end result? An absolute disaster for our healthcare system unless crucial steps are taken now.
Up until 1990 or so, the private practice of healthcare was hallowed and respected territory. Doctors and nurses were still the final authority on patient care; after all, they were the ones who sacrificed so very much of their lives learning how to make effective, critical decisions about the health of their patients. Unfortunately, today, third-party management wields a great deal of power over our providers, and too many doctors are now either jumping ship or, worse, refusing to board in the first place.
Fortunately, many good doctors have chosen private healthcare as an alternative. They call their own shots, they don’t mince words, and they simply render the best care they possibly can at each turn. And patients still seek them out, often paying substantial sums out of pocket. Those who can’t pay are treated just as carefully.
Healthcare providers must focus on what’s most essential to them in life and deliver services to their patients in ways that fully support them. Third-party players and regulatory bodies have made this ever more challenging. And that’s what Living and Practicing…by Design is all about – developing and preserving the fine art of private healthcare despite managed care.
