"An informative must-read for anyone interested in taking corporate health care to the next level by better serving employees and saving money." Adam Zagorin, Senior Correspondent, Time Magazine

WASHINGTON, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Sreedhar Potarazu, M.D., M.B.A., has worked as an industry leader in all aspects of health care. His mission in Get off the Dime is simple and profound: to change the purchasing and delivery of health care for the benefit of every consumer in the U.S.

His answer to the many woes that inhabit the current system is helping corporations and consumers understand how technology can improve the cost and quality of health care. As he maintains, consumers use technology to make decisions when purchasing cars, computers, clothes, and the like, so why hasn't this same approach worked for health care?

Because, Dr. Potarazu emphasizes, "There simply isn't enough transparency in the system to help heath care consumers make informed decisions." Launching a software company that enabled employers and employees to leverage technology to become smarter purchasers of health care gave Dr. Potarazu a comprehensive perspective on how dollars flow through the system. As he explains, empowering the purchasers of health care will drive the same kinds of quality changes that have occurred in other industries.

Many large companies have taken note and changed the way they purchase health care based on Dr. Potarazu's recommendations. If you want to understand how to purchase health care or better understand how your health care currently is purchased, Get off the Dime is a must read, and participating in Dr. Potarazu's national tour is likewise recommended.

"Smart engaged consumers will eventually drive efficiency into the health care system. Get off the Dime offers a blueprint to accelerate this movement." Dr. Mehmet C. Oz, health expert for The Oprah Winfrey Show and co-author with Dr. Michael Roizen of You: The Owner's Manual; You: The Smart Patient; and You: On a Diet
