Which Health Policies Actually Work?

We spend a lot of money on healthcare. How much if goes toward good studies of the health policies we implement. Not much. An almost natural experiment in Oregon has been revealing.

Does More Social Spending Reduce Healthcare Costs?

We spend a lot of money on social programs. Studies indicate that a lot of those programs work to improve health outcomes for people who receive the benefits. So, does that social spending reduce healthcare costs? Not really. But cutting social spending doesn’t help with health. As usual, it’s complicated, but there’s a lot of evidence these programs are doing good. Spending is worth it sometimes.

Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and Their Health Care Proposals

We’ve got an election coming up here. It’s pretty much a dumpster fire. But we’ve still got a country to run, and a health care system that’s far from ideal. There are two main candidates, two main health care reform plans, and we’re going to break them down and discuss them. That’s the topic of this week’s Healthcare Triage.

And make sure to tune in to Healthcare Triage LIVE this Wednesday at 11:30 AM Eastern, where we’ll take all your questions on this topic.

Transformational Health Care Reform: Blueprint for America

The American health care system is on an unsustainable path characterized by government-dominated insurance. Fixing health care begins with changing the incentives and empowering consumers to seek value with their money, while increasing competition among providers. Reforming Medicaid, Medicare, access to HSAs, and private insurance will improve access, choice, and quality of health care.

The Health System of Taiwan: HCT Healthcare of Many Nations

What Americans dont understand about Public Healthcare

Public Healthcare, or as Americans call it: Social Healthcare, is an issue of contention almost every single U.S election. And the 2020 presidential elections won’t be any different. Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, Elisabeth Warren, and Bill de Blasio already voiced their support during Democratic primaries. However, what every election cycle in the United States also has in common is that the candidates who support public healthcare never actually present any plans for how the system would work or what it would even look like. Additionally, many American advocates of public healthcare don’t seem to know much about the social sacrifices, reforms and additional health measures that come with public healthcare to ensure a healthy society. In this video that will be discussed and several American misconceptions about public healthcare will be talked about.
