The Future of US Healthcare (HLOL #81)

by | Jul 31, 2012

Dr. G. Timothy Johnson is one of the nation’s leading medical communicators of health care information. As former Chief Medical Editor for ABC News for 25 years, Dr. Johnson provided on-air medical analysis for “Good Morning America,” “World News,” “Nightline” and “20/20.” He is the author of several publications including a new book, The Truth About Getting Sick in America. Deservedly so, Dr. Johnson is the recipient of many prestigious awards.

In this podcast, Dr. Johnson talks with Helen Osborne about:

  • Three big problems facing US healthcare today. And how these problems compare to those in other developed countries.
  • Ways that patients, family members, health literacy advocates, healthcare providers, librarians, business leaders, the media, and others can help.
  • Outlook for years ahead—with a dose of pessimism and glimmers of hope.
