Favorite quotes of the episode:
“We need to fix the bureaucracy of healthcare. We spend 14% just on the billing and collection in the U.S. That’s more than $1000 for every family of four in the US. In Japan, for example, they spend less than 3% or $59 on billing. We need to reduce the bureaucracy and fix costs so that we can improve outcomes.”
“62% of bankruptcies in America are due to healthcare costs.”
“Medical bills are often wrong around 15% of the time.”
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.
