Emanuel has written what is being called a brilliant diagnostic explanation of why health care in America has become such a divisive social issue, how money and medicine have their own – quite distinct – American story, and why reform has bedeviled both liberal and conservative presidents for more than 100 years. He will forecast six mega trends in health that will determine the market for health care in 2020 and beyond.
