In this book, Dr. Lancaster not only explains the need for a new healthcare system like EMBRACE but also demonstrates how it might feel to live in the United States with such a system. Working under the assumption that the reader has no background in the subject, he provides an idea of the possible effects of EMBRACE on consumers (patients), doctors, hospitals, businesses, and even government.

The book and a Kindle version of the book are now available on

Trump -- Adopt this plan!
By Tony TN on November 6, 2016

This book outlines a sensible, fair, pragmatic and comprehensive plan for making healthcare not just affordable and available to everyone, but also better. Each short (and very readable) chapter deals with a different aspect or stakeholder in the healthcare debate and describes how the plan would affect the delivery or improve the quality of that part of the medical system. This is neither a "Big Government" nor a "Darwinian Free Market" approach but, instead a well thought out blueprint for morphing our current medical morass into something we will be able to cherish and be proud to pass on to our children. And it is a very American solution to the problem - not attempting to stuff a European or Canadian plan whole-cloth into our society. Dr. Lancaster writes clearly and concisely in language that anyone can understand, and anticipates and addresses objections as he makes his case. Whether you love or loathe the ACA you owe it to yourself to read this book if just to see how calm reason can be applied to this complex and emotionally-fraught problem.

Read this book to once again feel that we could indeed fix our broken healthcare system!
By Wendy Bellows on August 15, 2016

 This extremely easy-to-read, 90-page book is a MUST READ for anyone concerned with healthcare in the United States today! The ACA (Obamacare) helped many get coverage who had none before, but it did almost nothing to address the main problem, which is that the system is overly complicated, does little to prevent disease, spends huge resources on treating disease, and treats people differently based on their income, employment status, race, or age. This book presents a new plan conceived by a group of healthcare professionals - those in the trenches who deal with the healthcare system every day and who know its strengths and weaknesses. It presents a practical, realistic plan to overhaul and modernize healthcare in this country as a public system that covers basic healthcare need for everyone, while still allowing private insurance to cover what the public system does not.
 This book is for ANYONE concerned about this topic. It's written in simple, plain English that anyone can follow and is well organized. The first chapter summarizes the benefits for patients/consumers, healthcare professionals, hospitals, businesses, government, private insurance companies, and public health agencies, and explains the EMBRACE plan. Each chapter that follows focuses on explaining the benefits of the plan and how it would work for each audience (patients/consumers, healthcare professionals, etc.). And an Epilogue discusses how we could make EMBRACE a reality.

By Teresita Rubio for David Hamerman, MD on July 27, 2016

 Gilead Lancaster MD, has set forth a dramatic plan to introduce a new and comprehensive health system under the concept of EMBRACE (Expanding Medical and Behavioral Resources with Access to Care for Everyone.)
 The plan will improve healthcare for patients, and streamline healthcare for professionals, hospitals and businesses. Benefits will be notable for government and private insurance companies. Public health agencies will be integrated effectively into the entire system.
 I suggest all those concerned with improving the healthcare system in our country read this book.
