Hippocrates Shrugged: How the Culture of Medicine Kills Doctors and Patients

Dr. Robert Pearl is the former CEO of Kaiser Permanente, host of the podcast, “Fixing Healthcare,” and a clinical professor of plastic surgery at Stanford. He joins me to talk about his new book, “Uncaring: How the Culture of Medicine Kills Doctors and Patients” — you know, an uplifting story — which is tackling head-on issues well beyond physician burnout and the flawed culture that guides medical professionals in their practice. He’s also one of the more vocal and outspoken expatriates from our fabulously broken healthcare ecosystem who is fueled by, among other things, having had family members die unnecessarily due to hospital errors. This is Hippocrates Shrugged if there ever were such a metaphor. Enjoy the show.
