In 2007 David Goldhill’s father died from infections acquired in a well-regarded New York hospital. The bill, for several hundred thousand dollars, was paid by Medicare. Angered, Goldhill became determined to understand how it was possible that well-trained personnel equipped with world-class technologies could be responsible for such inexcusable carelessness—and how a business that failed so miserably could still be rewarded with full payment.  In his book, Catastrophic Care, Goldhill explodes the myth that Medicare and insurance coverage can make care cheaper and improve our health, and shows how efforts to reform the system, including the Affordable Care Act, will do nothing to address the waste of the health care industry.  The health care industry currently costs the country nearly $2.5 trillion annually and an estimated 200,000 Americans die each year from preventable errors. Goldhill shares a completely new approach at Summit, one that will change the way you think about one of our most pressing national problems.
