I've been curious about Andrew Yang as a US presidential candidate, but he has some controversial stances on the healthcare system and physician compensation. I could be mistaken, but I believe he wants to give more autonomy to NPs and PAs, change the payment system from by service to hourly with MDs, and allow robots to provide diagnostic authority. All of this could potentially be harmful. He has also voiced concern for "primary care deserts" which I understand, but I am still unsure how he will try to address this.
I think Andrew Yang is an interesting candidate, but his biggest turnoff for me is his view on the healthcare system and perspective on MDs, NPs, PAs, and autonomous systems within medicine. If anyone could shed more light on his policies, that would be great.
For anyone interested in his book, this is his audiobook version:
