Health Care CEO Envisions New and Improved American Medical System

Michael Dowling’s “Health Care Reboot: Megatrends Energizing American Medicine” Released by ForbesBooks

NEW YORK (Dec. 3, 2018) Michael Dowling, President and CEO of Northwell Health; and Charles Kenney, Executive Editor of the Northwell Series on Health Care Innovation, today announced the publication of Health Care Reboot: Megatrends Energizing American Medicine (available now). The book is published with ForbesBooks, the exclusive business book publishing imprint of Forbes Media.

The American health care system has long been considered among the best in the world. However, many now believe that it is among the worst in terms of standard of care, financial cost, and value.

At this critical juncture for U.S. health care, Michael Dowling and co-author Charles Kenney share a different perspective in Health Care Reboot: Megatrends Energizing American Medicine, arguing that the “decline narrative” is both outdated and overstated. They make a compelling case by presenting and addressing nine strong trends that are positioning the nation’s health care system toward greater quality, safety, access, and affordability. As Dowling and Kenney dive into these transformative cases, readers gain an in-depth understanding of the systematic changes being made in the industry and the positive future ahead.

Health Care Reboot injects a much-needed dose of optimism into the national debate. “While we still have a long way to go to make health care more efficient and effective, we’ve made enormous strides in finding new cures and treatments for cancer, heart disease, stroke and other potentially deadly conditions, while also expanding access to care, restoring patients’ trust in the system and delivering value,” said Mr. Dowling.

The book, Health Care Reboot: Megatrends Energizing American Medicine, is now available for purchase on Amazon.com.
