His most recent book, Getting it Done: How Obama and Congress Finally Broke the Stalemate to Make Way for Healthcare Reform, was published in October 2010.

In January 2012, Daschle was named along with former Senator Dr. Bill Frist to the advisory board of ZocDoc, an online booking startup for healthcare professionals dedicated to enhancing patient convenience and empowerment to improve overall health.
