“This book could spark the kind of refreshing change so necessary in American healthcare today. It’s the ideal time for us to learn the lessons Todd Furniss shares in The 60% Solution helping us all achieve 100% of the change necessary to make affordable patient-centered care a reality in our lifetime.”
“Rooted in and motivated by his own family’s tragic medical history, Todd Furniss offers an insider’s look at what works, and what doesn’t work, in our healthcare system. Furniss rejects ideological calls for magic-bullet solutions like single payer. Instead, he identifies the problem areas in health care and offers laser-guided, practical reforms that will just make our system work better.”
“The 60% Solution weaves together personal anecdotes, interesting business cases, and compelling policy recommendations to make a powerful case for healthcare reform. The author has first-hand experience with the vagaries, wastefulness Definitely recommended reading for innovative and forward-thinking policy makers.”
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.
