002 Medical Bureaucrats Need to Hear from Healthcare Providers, Says Dr. Alejandro Badia002 Medical Bureaucrats Need to Hear from Healthcare Providers, Says Dr. Alejandro Badia: In the second segment of his radio interview on WJR-Detroit with Vanessa Denha, the topic is the fact that medical bureaucracies are running with no input from the actual providers to must give and administer the healthcare. In order for this mess to be straightened out, methods of authorizing care more rapidly must be implemented or many people will be denied much needed procedures and drugs for their medical conditions.Dr. Alejandro Badia is no stranger to the flaws and frustrations of the U.S. healthcare system. A leading hand surgeon with a medical degree from NYU, multiple accolades, and decades of experience, Dr. Badia has spent more than a quarter-century in the trenches of U.S. healthcare. His new book Healthcare from the Trenches is an open discussion of the failure of the U.S. healthcare system from the perspectives of its “providers” and patients—perspectives today’s healthcare debate sorely lacks. “People are challenged because of a flawed system,” says Dr. Badia. “Staff at insurance companies with no medical training dictate what constitutes reimbursable care. The result is that their interference disrupts the doctor-patient relationship, delays or prevents delivery of care, and presents new obstacles to new approaches that would improve patient outcomes and reduce costs.”“Instead of simply squatting under the dark cloud of our current healthcare system, Dr. Badia stands tall and offers the opinions and perspectives of healthcare providers and patients.”- Grady Harp, Amazon Top 50 Hall of Fame Reviewer, 5-starsIn Healthcare from the Trenches, Dr. Badia challenges the entrenched bureaucracy in the U.S. healthcare system—a bureaucracy that is only growing with each attempt to “fix” it. “Since the implementation of the [U.S.] Affordable Care Act, healthcare in America has become an even greater bureaucratic nightmare than before,” Dr. Badia says. “What started as incremental interference in the relationship between doctor and patient with the passage of the Medicare Act of 1965 is now an impenetrable barrier made up of governmental and health care insurance industry red tape. The result is higher costs and greater inefficiencies.”
