[HAH Pt 2] What is Universal Healthcare?
Favorite quotes of the episode: “Public health has got to be one of the economic foundations in our country.” “Americans will always do the right thing in the end but only after exhausting all the other possibilities.” Winston Churchhill “The Phrase ‘Universal Healthcare’ has become a political hot potato. It doesn’t mean no choice, we can have choice and universal healthcare.” “If you have a better plan, we want to hear it, because what we want is the best path forward for our Country. I am not a Republican, I’m not a Democrat, I want to see solutions for this problem, and I’d like the solutions to work.” Episode Overview In this episode, I talk with Ed Eichhorn. He is a successful healthcare executive and entrepreneur. He consults for medical societies and healthcare organizations through his company Medilink Consulting Group. Ed is the co-author of Healing American Healthcare, a book that describes a universal healthcare plan for the United States that would actually save our country $1 trillion per year. Ed recently founded the Healing American Healthcare Coalition to keep healthcare professionals informed on important research and industry news.
