A look at Brill the elitist healthcare observer

Share this:



Ron Shrinkman, writing in Fierce Healthcare, takes apart rich, elitist writer/entrepreneur Steven Brill’s new book, Bitter Pill, about American healthcare in general and the creation of the Affordable Care Act in particular.

Mr. Shrinkman writes: “Few ordinary patients–the true bearers of change in healthcare policy–appear in this book, and virtually all of them came from the¬†Time article {that Mr Brill wrote that was the basis of his book}. Mr. Shrinkman¬† suggests that Mr. Brill is full of the hubris and social isolation of the “1 Percent” — as the gap between the very rich and everyone else widens.
