Overcoming the Healthcare Klugeocracy
In this special 100th episode of The Business of Healthcare Podcast, Dr. John McCracken joins host Dr. Bob Kaiser to discuss the most significant healthcare changes over the past quarter-century, including healthcare inflation and physician burnout, which McCracken calls moral injury. The root cause of these problems, McCracken says, is kludgeocracy, a government built and run on quick fixes.
