NEW YORK, April 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Access to affordable healthcare is a hot topic in the United States with politicians battling over how to solve the problem for millions of Americans. Healthcare and business expert Todd Furniss reveals his solution with the release of The 60% Solution: Rethinking Healthcare.
With over 30 years of global experience in private equity, management consulting and senior-level operations, Furniss grew profits in 10 industries. Now, he's dedicating his expertise to the healthcare industry with his groundbreaking book.
The 60% Solution outlines a return to consumerism, and a decreased interdependence on insurance as a solution to society's approach to healthcare. Called The 60 Percent Solution due to the exclusion of 20 percent of the population in Medicaid and the additional 20 percent using Medicare, the goals are to reduce the cost of healthcare for all and help lift many out of poverty.
Furniss shares actionable measures individuals can take to become financially capable, educated, and engaged enough to demand the far-reaching reform necessary. It's based on five critical components:
- Emphasizing primary care
- Clarifying pricing
- Standardizing accounting and IT
- Modifying Health Savings Accounts
- Changing governance
"In writing this book, I wanted to provide solutions for patients that would create a healthier and more streamlined healthcare industry," says Todd. "The goal is to create a system that not only works well, but also serves the greatest number of people at the lowest cost over time."
