Hey everyone, I’m Meghan Nechrebecki and I’m the founder of Health Care Transformation. This is me: (It’s such a pleasure to meet you!)
I earned my Master’s in Public Health from Johns Hopkins and for the past seven years I’ve been working with doctors, hospitals, and health insurance companies to improve the health outcomes of patients. And today, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to (drumroll please…)
Health Care Transformation- For the People!
This blog will educate, engage, and empower you to better understand the health care system and to take control over your health- both for yourself and for your loved ones.
And why is this so important?
Because, as you probably know by now, we as a country have really high healthcare costs, which unfortunately most of us have experienced. And sadly, we don’t have that great of health outcomes either!
In a report by the Commonwealth Fund that compares the U.S. to other high-income countries, the U.S. ranked last on performance overall and ranked last or near last on the Access, Administrative Efficiency, Equity, and Health Care Outcomes categories. We have a lot of work to do here guys and gals!
We all know there are a lot of issues with our U.S. health care system but I actually believe that there is at least one powerful solution in front of us and that’s YOU! That’s everyone that ever has been or will be a patient.
I firmly believe that by engaging and empowering patients to understand and navigate the healthcare system, you will actually make more informed and better decisions for you and your loved ones, which believe it or not will have a large impact on reducing health care costs and improving your health.
So let’s get started! What can you expect from Health Care for the People?
