Unaccountable: What Hospitals Won't Tell You and How Transparency Can Revolutionize Health Care by Marty Makary MD


Dr. Marty Makary is co-developer of the lifestyles-saving guidelines outlined in Atul Gawande's bestselling The Guidelines Manifesto. As a busy doctor who has labored in a number of the absolute best hospitals in the nation, he can testify to the wonderful energy of modern medication to remedy. However he's also been a witness to a medical tradition that automatically leaves surgical sponges inside of patients, amputates the wrong limbs, and overdoses kids because of sloppy handwriting. Over the last ten years, neither error charges nor prices have come down, despite scientific development and efforts to curb expenses. Why? To patients, the healthcare machine is a black box. medical Doctors and hospitals are unaccountable, and the shortage of transparency leaves both unhealthy doctors and systemic flaws unchecked. Sufferers want to know more of what healthcare employees know, so they are able to make knowledgeable selections. Accountability in healthcare would expose bad doctors, reward just right performance, and drive sure exchange nationally, the use of the power of the free market. Unaccountable is a formidable, no-nonsense, non-partisan prognosis for healing our hospitals and reforming our damaged healthcare device.
