Navigating the bureaucracy of the US healthcare system for patients and their families can be a trauma over and above the adverse medical event. Over 100,000 Americans are waiting for an organ transplant and many of them may not have enough insurance coverage to cover the cost of the operation and the required post-op pharmaceuticals during recovery. To determine what can be done to repair our failing healthcare system and what it will take to have a nation of healthy people, Positive Psychology Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two medical doctors who wrote books about their respective fields of care. Dr. Deane Waldman is on a mission to cure the US healthcare system. He describes how the system is ill and the key takeaways from his book, Curing the Cancer in U. S. Healthcare: StatesCare and Market-Based Medicine. Dr. David Weill details the stories of the organ transplant process in his book, Exhale: Hope, Healing, and a Life in Transplant. He shares information about the donors, the recipients, and the vast network of people involved in the logistics of organ transplantation.
