Just in time for the current health care debate, NetLibrary is making available as its eBook of the Month a relevant work entitled Flatlined: Resuscitating American Medicine. “In Flatlined, author Guy L. Clifton, M.D., lifts the veil of secrecy on twenty-first century health care and delves into the realities of people caught in a bad medical system. Arguing that a lack of coordinated care and quality medical practice benchmarks result in high levels of redundancy and ineffectiveness, Clifton proposes that the key to reducing health care costs, improving quality, and financially protecting the uninsured, is to reduce wastefulness, and offers a solution for achieving success.”
This electronic book will be freely available to USI personnel (students, faculty, and staff) during the month of September. To access this title, simply go the the library’s Databases page.
