Yorktown, VA (PRWEB) June 26, 2014
As a tribute to the ongoing efforts of IBM’s Paul Grundy, MD, and his advocacy on behalf of the Patient-Centered Medical Home, Team Care Medicine and author Peter Anderson, MD, have made the Kindle edition of The Familiar Physician available for the special summertime price of 99 cents, from June through September.
The 99 cent Kindle version of The Familiar Physician: Saving Your Doctor in the Era of Obamacare is available at Amazon.com (Paperback: 242 pages, Morgan James Publishing; September 15, 2013. Available at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and major retailers.)
“The book describes the decade-long efforts of Dr. Grundy to bring the Medical Home into the mainstream of American healthcare,” said Dr. Peter Anderson. “This special e-book offer reflects our desire to extend those efforts by spreading the word on the benefits of a high-functioning Medical Home for people who provide, receive and pay for healthcare.”
In addition to telling the story of the Medical Home’s birth, growth and current role in health reform, The Familiar Physician describes the powerful forces of change at the core of the Affordable Care Act and their ability to either strengthen or seriously damage primary care medicine in general and family doctors in particular. “We are in the midst of a perfect storm threatening the supply and demand balance in primary care, but there are new and promising approaches, including the Medical Home and the team care model, that hold the potential to improve access to care and make the physician-patient relationship even stronger,” Dr. Anderson added.
“At the heart of The Familiar Physician is not only a message of hope about the future of healthcare, but also a clear guide as to how physicians and the people they serve can make sure that hope becomes a reality,” says Dr Anderson, “As a result, I believe we will survive the challenges currently arrayed against primary care medicine and go on to thrive in the new care environment. We are gratified that people within the healthcare field, as well as the public, are already resonating with this message and we expect the Kindle edition to carry it to even more people.”
