Overview

It’s a Great Time to Be a Physician: Building a Healthcare System that Works is a call to action for physicians. It is a first-hand account of the changes being demanded of the US healthcare system and their implications for physicians. Eight trends are described that will create a better, more sustainable healthcare system for everyone—including physicians and other providers, patients and payers—and for our economy. The book draws on Dr. Jeffrey Weisz’s experience as the executive medical director of the Southern California Permanente Medical Group, and on the experiences of physicians throughout the system who have led the region to national preeminence on many measures of healthcare quality and outcomes, and in fulfilling the mission of prevention and keeping people healthy. The book also highlights other innovative healthcare systems where physicians are leading the way to high-quality, patient-focused care, improved outcomes, and higher value. Weisz argues that the challenges facing healthcare provide a unique opportunity for physicians to shape the healthcare system of the future.
