Russell J. Andrews Challenges Profit-Seeking Health Care
Date:8/22/2013

LOS GATOS, Calif. (PRWEB) August 23, 2013

“Medicine in America has become a profit-motive industry rather than a healing art,” says author, physician and researcher Russell J. Andrews, M.D., D.Ed. “Unlike other developed nations, we have transformed medicine from a service provided by society to its citizens into a profit machine for those individuals and companies in the health care delivery arena.” In his new book “Too Big to Succeed: Profiteering in American Medicine” (published by iUniverse) Andrews indicts this practice, offers evidence for its existence and urges readers to take steps to correct it.

“Too Big to Succeed” describes how American medicine is on an unsustainable course; costs are increasing while benefits are deteriorating in comparison with other developed nations. Beginning with the Hippocratic Oath and the premedical student, Andrews traces the myriad ways in which the profit motive has infiltrated American medicine – including medical school training, current models of health care delivery, medical professional societies, medical research and medical drug and device development.

Though any discourse about health care is near-certain to be contentious, Andrews knows he is tackling a particularly thorny issue. “Resistance to this message will come not only from companies that are profiting handsomely from the status quo,” he says, “but also from many physicians, who would see it as a threat to their personal, financial well-being.”
