About Beyond the Walls
The American healthcare system is failing us. It is a frustratingly complex, opaque, and unaffordable system that results in suboptimal care and a deterioration of the welfare of the majority of American families. The experience of the past few decades and the recent ravaging pandemic has shown us that doing more of the same is not going to deliver us from this dilemma. But there is hope. There is a way to create a more accessible, consumer-friendly, safer, and affordable system of care for all of us.
In Beyond the Walls, Dr. Neuwirth, a physician, healthcare executive, and innovator distills, in understandable language, the learnings from years of in-depth research into the megatrends and market disruptors that are shaping the present and immediate future of American healthcare. Through the stories of those behind the movement, he uncovers the forces that are driving better health outcomes, more personalized care, greater equity, and lower costs.
Unlike many other books in this genre, the focus is on what’s right in American healthcare rather than on what’s wrong. It is practical, actionable and rooted in a realistic understanding of the industry’s challenges and opportunities. It’s an inspiring and instructive read on the courageous leaders that are dismantling the barriers to innovation in healthcare delivery.
This book reads like a collection of heroic journeys. These stories encourage and embolden us not to be held hostage by the mindset, behaviors, and inertia of the past. They are intended to ignite the creativity, integrity, and courage of more leaders to go beyond the walls and leverage their own potential to contribute to a more humane future for American healthcare. This is a “must-read” for anyone who wants better healthcare and better health.
