the Dime: The Secret of Changing Who Pays for Your Health Care

NEW YORK, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ --

"Dr. Potarazu's book is both compelling and informative. His vision of

empowering patients and employers, by using innovative technology, having transparent costs, and integrating social networking, can truly revolutionize
the system from one that fails to one that works."

Newt Gingrich, Founder

Center for Health Transformation

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.

"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
