Research has been a major factor at the Durham Veterans Affairs Medical Center
since the inception in 1953. This book details these activities. The primary
focus is on the investigators, describing the nature of their research and their
involvement in patient care activities. A number of these individuals have made
major contributions to research, not only at the VA, but at Duke University
Medical Center and at a number of other academic institutions. The research
activities continue to be a vibrant component of the VA mission.

The long-maligned Veterans Health Administration has become the highest-quality
healthcare provider in the United States. This encouraging change not only has
benefited veterans but also provides a blueprint for salvaging America's own
deeply troubled healthcare system. "Best Care Anywhere" shows how a government
bureaucracy, working with little notice, is setting the standard for best
practices and cost reduction while the private sector is lagging in both areas.
Author Phillip Longman challenges conventional wisdom by explaining exactly how
market forces work to lower quality and raise prices in the healthcare sector,
and how U.S. medical practices have a weak basis in science. The book, expanded
from a widely praised article in the "Washington Monthly," mixes hard facts with
author Philip Longmans' compelling human story of the loss of his wife to
cancer. Part manifesto, part moving memoir, "Best Care Anywhere" offers new hope
for addressing a major problem of contemporary society that affects all of us.
