    • The American healthcare system is broken. We rank dead last among advanced industrialized countries in terms of healthcare cost, quality, and access to routine care. The 2010 Affordable Care Act, better known as ObamaCare, tried to reform U.S. healthcare, sparking a divisive, seven-year political battle. The election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States, along with the retention of Republican majorities in the U.S. House and Senate, portend major changes for U.S. healthcare, including the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. What changes are ahead? Will millions of newly insured people become uninsured again? Will President Trump improve healthcare affordability? In their new book, healthcare thought leaders Harry Nelson and Rob Fuller take on the big questions about healthcare on many people's minds not just what the repeal of ObamaCare will mean for patients and the healthcare industry, but what its replacement TrumpCare will look like. What will the future hold for U.S. healthcare? What can we expect and what can we do to tackle healthcare challenges?Nelson and Fuller get to the heart of the long-term challenges facing U.S. healthcare, the legacy of ObamaCare, and what to expect for healthcare under President Trump. Readers will come away with a more nuanced and comprehensive sense of the challenges and tensions facing reform of U.S. healthcare, and how they are likely to play out in practical terms.Chapter Overview: 1-Setting the Scene: What s Broken in U.S. Healthcare?2-The Strange, Wonkish Road to Obamacare 3-The Good, Bad, and Ugly of Obamacare Implementation 4-A Better Way?
