Healthcare in the US is rapidly changing. The changes that are occurring as a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or “Obamacare” will forever modify the way in which doctors and patients interact.
This book is a collection of essays that initially are a heartfelt description of the author’s passion for patient care and an exploration of the “art” of healing. These essays then go on to explore healthcare reform in the US and how the proposed (and ongoing) changes in the healthcare system are likely to impact the practice of medicine and ultimately affect the doctor-patient relationship. The essays explore ethical concerns and leave us wondering just how medicine will be practiced in the future.
○ Campbell is a practicing physician with nearly 20 years experience. He is uniquely positioned to comment on the sacred nature of the doctor-patient relationship and how it might be impacted by healthcare reform
○ Affordable Care Act (ACA) or “Obamacare” and its fallout will be a hot-button issue in campaigns during both the midterm 2014 and Presidential election in 2016. The book, if released in early 2015 can be marketed to a wide variety of readers as a point of political discussion. Moreover, by speaking as a doctor “on the front lines” Campbell can give a credible account as to how the ACA has negatively impacted the practice of medicine in the US today
○ In addition, with Campbell’s position as an on-air Fox News (national) contributor, he will be able to market and discuss this book on air — particularly as it relates to the upcoming elections in the US
