Publisher's Summary

Despite being the wealthiest nation on earth, the United States spends much of its health-care money and resources pursuing the wrong goal: curing people after they get sick. In this provocative book, Nicholas J. Webb charts a bold new path that puts the focus not on reactionary treatment, but on anticipation and prevention. Emerging digital technologies now make it possible to collect, analyze, and act upon the enormous quantities of health-related data that every individual generates every day. This data often foreshadows disease and can alert the health-care provider to the existence of a life-threatening condition before there are any outward symptoms, thereby enabling caregivers to pivot from treatment after the fact to anticipation, prevention, and, when necessary, reduced treatment to correct a smaller problem. 

This is The Healthcare Mandate - a powerful and illuminating guide to the new tools that health-care professionals can start using right now to: see their clients not only as patients to be cured, but as constituents to keep healthy; identify and respond to emerging health problems as early as possible; access and share constituent data with other health-care providers; navigate the increasingly complex world of patient data rights; address constituent lifestyle choices that lead to obesity, diabetes, and heart disease; and more.

Worst. Narrator. Ever.

I work in healthcare and enjoy audio books on what are often seen as "dry" topics. This is actually very interesting subject matter, but the delivery was 💩!

Seriously, this narrator SUCKS. He sounds like an old-school Speak 'n Spell, but without the personality. I wanted to gouge out my eardrums with a screwdriver listening to this guy. Ugh!
