<p><b><i>The New York Times</i> Science Bestseller from Robert Wachter, <i>Modern Healthcare’s</i> #1 Most Influential Physician-Executive in the US</b></p> <p>While modern medicine produces miracles, it also delivers care that is too often unsafe, unreliable, unsatisfying, and impossibly expensive. For the past few decades, technology has been touted as the cure for all of healthcare’s ills.</p> <p>But medicine stubbornly resisted computerization – until now. Over the past five years, thanks largely to billions of dollars in federal incentives, healthcare has finally gone digital.</p> <p>Yet once clinicians started using computers to actually deliver care, it dawned on them that something was deeply wrong. Why were doctors no longer making eye contact with their patients? How could one of America’s leading hospitals give a teenager a 39-fold overdose of a common antibiotic, despite a state-of-the-art computerized prescribing system? How could a recruiting ad for physicians tout the absence of an electronic medical record as a major selling point?</p> <p>Logically enough, we’ve pinned the problems on clunky software, flawed implementations, absurd regulations, and bad karma. It was all of those things, but it was also something far more complicated. And far more interesting . . .</p> <p>Written with a rare combination of compelling stories and hard-hitting analysis by one of the nation’s most thoughtful physicians, <i>The Digital Doctor</i> examines healthcare at the dawn of its computer age. It tackles the hard questions, from how technology is changing care at the bedside to whether government intervention has been useful or destructive. And it does so with clarity, insight, humor, and compassion. Ultimately, it is a hopeful story.</p> <p>"We need to recognize that computers in healthcare don’t simply replace my doctor’s scrawl with Helvetica 12," writes the author Dr. Robert Wachter. "Instead, they transform the work, the people who do it, and their relationships with each other and with patients. . . . Sure, we should have thought of this sooner. But it’s not too late to get it right."</p> <p>This riveting book offers the prescription for getting it right, making it essential reading for everyone – patient and provider alike – who cares about our healthcare system.</p>

<p>Instead of helping in the aftermath of loss, many of the books and strategies meant to guide us through grief only add to the sadness. No one understands the need for a new approach more than Michelle Steinke-Baumgard, who lost her husband in a tragic plane accident and became a widow overnight. In the darkest moment of her life, the mother of two young children found solace and hope in the unlikeliest of places: exercise. She recorded her journey in her blog, <em>One Fit Widow,</em> and soon had a huge community of devoted followers. Now, Michelle offers her revolutionary solution to grief to everyone struggling with their own loss.</p><p><br /><em>Healthy Healing </em>addresses the physical, mental, and emotional effects of grief in a way that no other book in the category has ever done, offering a 12-week plan that empowers you to work through loss by using the power of exercise and endorphins, and rediscovering happiness by strengthening body, mind and spirit through fitness. And the benefits don’t end there: Exercise helps with poor sleep—a common side effect of trauma—and proper nutrition boosts immunity and fuels you through a busy, stressful time.<em> </em>Michelle dispels common myths about grief and replaces them with relatable advice and actionable inspiration, including:</p><p><br />• Starting with baby steps such as taking a walk or being in nature<br />• Learning to be comfortable with alone time and rediscovering your strength<br />• Pairing your exact circumstances with the right form of exercise, whether it’s gentle yoga to release trapped sadness or intense kickboxing to work through anger<br />• Embracing community and surrounding yourself with support </p><p>This book is an exercise plan, nutrition guide, and, most importantly, a compassionate companion during the most difficult time in your life. With <em>Healthy Healing</em>, you’ll learn how to channel your pain into something productive—and use tragedy as a catalyst for inspired change. </p><p> </p>
