John Henry Abakah’s New Book ‘Issues Patients Face After Visiting a Provider’ Raises Concern on the Problems the Healthcare Field Faces

Fulton Books author John Henry Abakah is a member of the Healthcare Financial Management Association currently working at MedStar Health. He has completed his most recent book “Issues Patients Face After Visiting a Provider”: a comprehensive discussion that examines the billing, medical-related, and document issues patients encounter after going through their provider.

Abakah shares, “Most patients face issues regarding bill payments, their care or documents after visiting a provider. Payment concerns include disputes about bills and coverage issues.

“Care-related issues include high prescription prices, medical errors and adverse drug events including false positives and false negative test results. In addition, foreign objects are sometimes left in patients after surgeries, resulting in inflammation, infection and abscess. Equipment issues include faulty devices and equipment such as defibrillators and stents. The Covid-19 pandemic exposed the need for infection control and effective personal protective equipment.

“Document issues include disputes about getting medical records, itemized statements and claim documents. Security breaches such as hacking and theft often expose patient information to unauthorized use and increase the risk of identity theft and bad credit reports.

“Solutions include providers adopting strategies to effectively capture data and analyzing them in a holistic manner. Patients should also resolve disputes with the provider instead of ignoring them. Some providers in turn offer financial assistance and payment incentives to patients. Finally, patients should influence local and national health policies and get involved in their state’s legislative process.”

Published by Fulton Books, John Henry Abakah’s book is an illuminating exposition that explores healthcare-related issues patients face. A variety of problems occur and this manuscript details the subject in visual imagery like charts and tables completely backed up by sources. Overall, this work hopes to raise awareness for everyone in society and the healthcare industry.
