America spends more than any other developed nation on healthcare--2.1 trillion in 2007 alone. But 47 million Americans remain uninsured, and of those Americans who are insured, many suffer from poor health. In his ground-breaking proposal, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel offers up a plan to comprehensively restructure the delivery and quality of our healthcare. By eliminating employer-healthcare and establishing an independent program to evaluate healthcare plans and insurance companies, he offers a no-nonsense guide to how government can institute private insurance options that will allow each of us a choice of doctor and plan. With the rate of healthcare costs rapidly outpacing our gross domestic product, we can no longer afford to maintain our fragmented delivery of care, or entertain reforms that seek to patch, rather than cure, a fractured system. Accessible, straightforward, and revolutionary in its approach, Healthcare, Guaranteed is an inarguable guide to lasting healthcare reform.… (més)

Healthcare, Guaranteed is a broad discussion of pervasive problems in our health care system, and it lays out a comprehensive plan to remedy them. The author, Ezekiel Emanuel, is a physician, and his collaborator, Victor Fuchs, who wrote the foreword, is an economist; together they present a plan designed to ensure universal access, with economic fairness, a higher quality of care, and greater efficiency.

Over the last decade we have filled our libraries with treatises written on reforming health care. Yet, our health care system remains largely unchanged. Many of these volumes are overly complex or duplicative, quoting the same figures about the shocking percentage of GDP spent on healthcare (close to 17%) and the poor results achieved (well behind almost all industrialized countries). In this sea of undifferentiated policy work, Ezekiel Emanuel’s book Healthcare, Guaranteed: A Simple, Secure Solution for America stands out for its clarity of approach. If we were President for a day (or maybe even Ezekiel’s brother, who is Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel), we would mandate that Healthcare, Guaranteed be required reading for all members of Congress.

The American healthcare system is a dysfunctional mess. In the United States, healthcare costs over $2,100,000,000,000—that's $2.1 trillion—per year, or more than one out of every six dollars spent on everything in the entire United States. On an individual basis, the care tab comes to more than $7,000 per person. This is 50 percent higher per person than in second-place Switzerland and nearly double what neighboring Canada spends.
