At the Crossroads: The Future of Health Care in Vermont is the first comprehensive book about health care that focuses on Vermont. It uses data and extensive citation to build a case for badly needed change. It was responsible for extensive legislative debate and action in the ensuing year after its publication.
The book is currently being updated to ensure that the data is current in the rapidly changing cost side of health care.
