Richard Epstein, the Peter and Kirsten Bedford Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution and the Laurence A.

Hoover Institution Press released a book that challenges popular criticisms regarding access to and quality of medical care in the United States, In Excellent Health: Setting the Record Straight on America’s Health Care, by Scott W. Atlas, MD. In this book, Atlas exposes the facts about the state of America’s health care. He explains why the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of March 2010 (also known as Obamacare) is “grossly flawed” and proposes a logical reform plan designed to maintain choice and access to high-quality health care while also facilitating competition among insurers and providers. Atlas emphasizes that the fundamental challenge to reforming our health care system is devising public policies that empower more Americans to get better value for their health care dollar and to foster appropriate innovation that extends and improves life.
Scott W. Atlas, MD, is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, a professor of radiology and chief of neuroradiology at the Stanford University Medical Center, and senior fellow by courtesy at the Freeman-Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford. He delivered a talk titled “Health Care Reform: Setting the Record Straight on America’s Health Care” on Tuesday, November 8, 2011, at the University Auditorium in Palo Alto as part of the Martin and Illie Anderson Lecture series.
