#1 Bestselling author Todd Furniss, an industry insider, offers clear and practical solutions to the complexity of healthcare while examining the historical missteps that landed us facing ongoing systemic dysfunction. The book takes on the task of solving the impersonality of healthcare as well as creating an industry that embraces and manifests a compassionate delivery model, putting the power of choice in the center of the relationship of doctor/care-giver and patient.
The 60% Solution makes activists out of the 60% of Americans with private healthcare insurance. Our current system is far too costly, ineffectual, and cold; it violates the ideological and moral tenets of a caring nation. High insurance premiums and insurmountably large bills have left countless citizens under mounds of debt or rolling the dice with their lives.
This book is about the actionable measures we as individuals can take to become financially capable, educated, and engaged enough to demand the far-reaching reform necessary. It is an inspiring call to action to have all see the benefit of true healthcare reform that focuses on driving consumerism while vastly improving personal choice and access to affordable care.
