Reviews

This is a well-researched and thoughtful book from one of our nation's leaders in healthcare reform. Dr. Lee has written a practical guide with actionable solutions for policymakers, healthcare providers, and patients--a must-read!--Dr. Leana S. Wen, visiting professor at George Washington University, former president and CEO of Planned Parenthood, and former Baltimore city health commissioner
Dr. Lee has drawn upon her extensive experience and a wide range of physician and administrator colleagues to provide a deep understanding of the ailments plaguing the US health care system, accompanied with practical suggestions for how to remedy them. An excellent overview of the problems and potential solutions.--Robert S. Kaplan, Senior Fellow, Marvin Bower Professor of Leadership Development, emeritus, Harvard Business School
Dr. Lee's book is an insightful diagnostic look at what is not working in American medicine, and why, that is made compelling by her succinct, practical recommendations for what each of us--policy-maker, consumer, physician/health professional, and payer--can do now to realize the person-centered, high value health care system we all so long for.--Karen DeSalvo, chief health officer, Google Health and former US national coordinator for health information technology
A health professional turns an experienced eye toward sensible, ground-level actions to make medical care better and cheaper.
Lee speaks with authority.... Especially in light of the coronavirus emergency, Lee's call for everyone to play a role in 'the Long Fix' rings true.
