He has been an Invited Lecturer or Visiting Professor over 75 times, nationally and internationally.
• Experience in Healthcare Policy
Dr. Deane has used his knowledge of systems thinking to “diagnose” and treat what is wrong with our sick healthcare system. His conclusions have been reported in 50 original, peer-reviewed published articles, including the seminal works su ch, “Thinking systems [like healthcare] need systems thinking” and “The Shocking Cost of Turnover in Healthcare.”
Because of his expertise in the healthcare system, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez appointed Dr. Deane as “consumer advocate” on the Board of Directors of the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange.
Dr. Deane’s “cure” for healthcare, StatesCare, has been reported in Fox News, The Hill, Washington Examiner, and Real Clear Health before being fully described in the book, ‘Curing the Cancer in U.S. Healthcare.”
Doctor Waldman is currently Distinguished Senior Fellow in Healthcare Policy at Texas Public Policy Foundation.
• Communicator with the Public
Dr. Deane has a special ability to make highly complex issues understandable for the general public. He has published more than 350 articles about healthcare, in print media such as newspapers like the Wall Street Journal and the Albuquerque Journal as well as online in The Hill, Real Clear Health, Huffington Post, American Thinker, Investors Daily, Forbes, and The Blaze.
Dr. Deane has authored six print books and six eBooks on healthcare for the general public: His book, “Uproot U.S. Healthcare” was translated in to Spanish as “Cambio Radical al Sistema de Salud de los Estados Unidos.”
His “Cancer” books are easy-to-read works that have received 5-star ratings on Amazon. “The Cancer in American Healthcare” exposes the reason our system is failing. “Curing the Cancer in U.S. Healthcare” unveils the cure: StatesCare.
• Dr. Waldman’s advice is always based on evidence
Dr. Waldman understands that all those who advise on public policy, and particularly our elected decision-makers, must have evidence before they offer recommendations, much less before they legislate.
That is why you will find links to his evidence for statements made on this website. Documented proof for every assertion made in his writings are available in hyperlinks to online articles and in the chapter notes of books.
The lack of hard evidence is why Congress has consistently made poor decisions regarding our healthcare system. Congress never has proof that what they are going to enact will actually make things better for us.
