In today’s extended edition of the Health Care News Podcast, Dr. Gerard Gianoli joined Health Care News Managing Editor Michael Hamilton to help set Americans straight on legitimate reasons for disgruntlement with our nation’s health care system–and utterly bogus ones.
In addition to being one of Heartland’s newest policy advisors, Dr. Gianoli is president of the Ear and Balance Institute in Covington Louisiana and a clinical associate professor in otolaryngology and pediatrics at Tulane University School of Medicine.
Gianoli explains how an unscientific article in a medical journal published in May incited mass hysteria about medical error supposedly being the leading cause of death in the U.S.–and debunks it.
He goes on to name smothering federal rules for physician use of electronic medical records and third-party payers (such as government and insurance companies) as chief obstacles to forging better doctor-patient relationships and delivering more affordable, quality care accessible by all Americans.
