What is it about?

The 8 pages of this review summarize the original contribution of E. Emanuel's book on reforming the U.S. healthcare system. Interested readers can read this review and same themselves the time required to read the entire book! (It's not worth the investment of time.) The novel stuff involves 6 megatrends that in Emanuel view will mark a new epoch in American health care due to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Pretty clearly the ACA, even if somehow it does survive the Republican victories in November 2016, is not nearly revolutionary enough to cause the changes Emanuel predicts.,

Why is it important?

Reading the review provides knowledge of the original features of the Emanuel's book.
