Drew Remignanti

Something Or Other Publishing is delighted to introduce Dr. Drew Remignanti, an aspiring author seeking to publish his first book, “The Healing Connection: A Partnership for Your Health.”

Drew Remignanti MD, MPH.

Drew Remignanti, MD, MPH, grew up in New Jersey and graduated from Dartmouth College in 1975. He received an M.D. from Rutgers Medical School in 1980. After Rutgers, Drew, an emergency medicine physician, did his medical training in Hartford, CT, and Jacksonville, FL. He spent the rest of his long career working in hospitals in New Hampshire and Massachusetts and retired in April 2020.

With his extensive medical career, Drew has also lived with chronic illness since being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis at age 19. This disease led to seven abdominal operations and ultimately to a major stroke he experienced in 1992 when he was just 38.

After his stroke, he stepped back from the practice of emergency medicine for the next five years. During this time, Drew earned an MPH degree (Master of Public Health) from the Medical College of Wisconsin and participated in several international public health projects focused on polio eradication and rural health center development. This work took him to the Federated States of Micronesia, Honduras, Kenya, Pakistan, Ghana, and for earthquake relief in Haiti. 

By 1997, he had gone through extensive rehabilitation and recovered to the point where he could return to full-time emergency medicine practice. He shares that at the time of his stroke, his neurologist told him that he might not be able to return to the demands of this work, given the severity of his stroke. However, she recognized that he would not be content unless he worked in a challenging position. So she did not discourage him from attempting to complete his full rehabilitation back to emergency medicine.

This remarkable journey inspired Drew’s passion for writing, leading to the creation of his debut book, where he examines how the dollar-driven decisions by administrators at hospitals, health insurance providers, and pharmaceutical companies are wielding too much influence over our medical decisions as patients and, sadly, as physicians as well.

Drew pointed out that, alarmingly, one hospital CEO of a $1.5 billion healthcare system said, “People need primary care but not necessarily a physician relationship.” Drew also commented, “As patients, we are prone to place excessive importance on convenience and satisfaction and the number of healthcare interventions we can obtain at the lowest personal expenditure in dollars and effort. A 2012 study showed that patients who were most satisfied with their healthcare had more hospital admissions, higher total healthcare and prescription drug expenditures, and even greater death rates than less satisfied patients. The connection is that we express satisfaction when we get more medications, more healthcare services, and more hospitalizations, and those factors lead to an increased risk of death.”

The Healing Connection: A Partnership for Your Health” is now available at SOOP for a special price.
