The author spent over forty years working in the health care industry, gaining fi rsthand knowledge about the interworkings of the various industries that represent the whole. After graduating from the University of Texas Pharmacy School in 1959, Fritz worked in retail pharmacies for about twenty years and as an owner for fi fteen of those years. During this time, valuable experience was gained while working with doctors, drug-company representatives, nursing homes, health insurance companies, and the consuming public—his customers. After selling his retail pharmacy, more experiences were gained selling pharmacy computer systems to retail pharmacies, hospital pharmacies, and institutional pharmacies. Additional experiences came from working as a business broker listing and selling retail pharmacies. Beginning about 1969, the whole health care industry evolved from a free enterprise environment to one controlled by health insurance companies, drug manufacturers, litigious lawyers, and government-entitlement programs. After many years of witnessing the demise of the health care industry and building frustration over the absence of truth emanating from the talking heads representing all forms of our news media and politicians, he wrote is fi rst book, Health Care: It Can Be Fixed. There is not a more qualifi ed spokesman, nor a better friend, to health care than Fritz. He is no longer active in the industry, so he is absolutely free to speak the truth and help people understand where better health comes from. In addition to writing about health care, he is also a public speaker and a consultant to businesses and corporations.
