Examining the Current Lack of Trust in Health Care


On this episode of Managed Care Cast, we speak with one of the authors of a recent book looking at the erosion of trust in health care, the factors that influence trust, and what can be done to restore trust.

Trust in health care was eroding even before the COVID-19 pandemic. In a new book, "Re-Engaging in Trust: The Missing Ingredient to Fixing Healthcare," the authors, Jan Berger, MD, MJ, the CEO of Health Intelligence Partners, and Julie Slezak, MSPH, the president of the health care consulting firm, delve into this issue with data from multiple sources and viewed against the backdrop of multiple stakeholders.

Trust among stakeholders—providers, patients, health care organizations and systems, payers, drug companies, and others—is essential, yet it is increasingly fragile, they write. Trust should be measured and improved alongside health care metrics, according to Berger, who discusses the book on this episode of Managed Care Cast.
