David Goldhill, president and CEO of the Game Show Network, talks about his book, Catastrophic Care: How American Health Care Killed My Father - and How We Can Fix It, in which he contends that his father’s death was avoidable and questions how the nations' health care system allows over 200,000 similar deaths due to error. In 2007 David Goldhill’s father died from an infection incurred at a hospital due to medical mistreatment. The author presented his thoughts on the expansion of health care coverage and why patients need to be more like customers who are active participants in the cost of their care. He also responded to questions from the audience at the Harvard Club in New York City. close
