“This book should be on the desk of every CEO and elected official!”
Warren Blank, Ph.D., President, The Leadership Group, Vero Beach, FL
“Robert Herron’s book provides clear insights into the sources of dysfunction in the U.S. health care system and practical policy guidance about how the system can be made to work much more efficiently and effectively for all Americans. Herron’s evidence-based advice on increasing the relative amount of health care resources devoted to prevention (public health and primary care) is especially important. He offers innovative approaches to preventive care, drawn from what has become a significant body of research and experience with complementary and alternative medicine. Doctors and policymakers should read this book and act upon it.”
Robert C. Stowe, Ph.D., Associate Director, Science, Technology, and Public Policy Program, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
“Everybody who is concerned about the health care system and its continuously increasing costs over the inflation rate should read this book. It provides a scientifically- based method of analyzing the health-care problems and offers solutions that are cost effective and covering all areas of health care.
The advisers to the Presidential candidates should read this book as soon as possible in order to learn how easy it would be to have a better health care system which would be effective, economical and covering all areas of health care.”
Demetri P. Kanellalos, Ph.D., E.E., Retired Research Scientist at Stanford Research Institute
Revealing a winning strategy that integrates alternative and conventional health approaches, New Knowledge for New Results, shows how we can solve one of the world’s most urgent problems — high and rising medical costs. This book contains practical, science-based solutions, yet it is simple, clear, and easy to understand.
The author gives us a new way of looking at how medical systems work. He imaginatively applies general systems theory to create a new model of health systems. This innovation provides a simpler and clearer understanding of how complex medical systems function than past models.
Why do we have skyrocketing medical costs? The "usual suspects" are expensive new technologies, aging of the population, medical industry price gouging, etc. There is, however, a deeper, underlying cause of these expenses. Dr. Herron explains that medical knowledge is the basis of health system activities and results. Fundamental knowledge is the most essential component of any system because it can guide or misguide the performance of the entire system.
Substantial research and clinical experience suggest that the basic "knowledge" that guides modern medicine may be inaccurate and incomplete in several crucial areas. The author calls this deficiency, Medical Theory Failure, which is the inability of medical knowledge to describe and explain health-related phenomena accurately, reliably, and comprehensively. Faulty knowledge misguides the medical system to perform inefficiently and expensively, in spite of the best efforts of sincere, dedicated, and competent medical professionals.
New Knowledge for New Results brings to light an emerging body of knowledge that needs to be considered by mainstream medicine. Modern medicine’s failure to correct its guiding knowledge has created a vacuum. In response, many other streams of knowledge and medical traditions are converging in the marketplace to create a new health paradigm. This phenomenon is transforming the medical model worldwide. This change has been strongly influenced by the population’s increased use of traditional, complementary, and alternative medicine (CAM). The author compares and contrasts the old biomedical model with the newly emerging one. Herron presents suggestions for updating the conventional medical model.
While others provide partial, superficial solutions, which mainly focus on financial issues, this author presents numerous action steps for improving medical system effectiveness and a complete science-based strategy that applies disease prevention, health promotion, public health, primary care, scientifically-verified CAM, and many other approaches to cost-effectively improve health and reduce medical expenses.
While a well-coordinated multi-faceted approach is needed to fix the medical system, Herron reminds us that the most urgent need is to amend the medical theory, because this new knowledge will help guide us to apply our resources most effectively.
This book is an important contribution because skyrocketing medical expenses are a crisis. Nothing has succeeded in containing these costs in the long term. Neither free market strategies nor governmental policies have been able to reduce these expenditures. New Knowledge for New Results contains innovative, comprehensive, science-based solutions that will work.
