The objective of healthcare should be to maximize the quality of life for the entirety of one’s life. At Rethinking Healthcare, we believe this should include the human body and mind, not a sole focus on the presence or absence of an illness or the presence or absence of functionality. Living a healthful life should be considered a team sport, with health professionals being the “coaches” and the individual as the “star athlete”. We also believe there is a cost to everything in life, but cost should not be prohibitive to the access to care. Many individuals who comment on healthcare issues advocate for “solutions” driven by ideology, rather than practical or economic viability. We firmly believe that solutions to outrageous regulation and prices exist within market dynamics. For these reasons, Rethinking Healthcare is being brought to the marketplace of ideas with the goal of bringing access to information for those in need, while offering solutions to existing problems, in a practical and meaningful sense.
