SOI203 - Healing American Healthcare

 

Edward Eichhorn is the President of Medilink Consulting Group, a company that provides sales, strategic planning, and marketing advice for medical service and imaging businesses all over the country. Their company spearheaded the Healing American Healthcare Coalition to make sure healthcare professionals are always informed with the business and research side of the COVID Pandemic. Edward is also an author and the man behind the book, Healing American Healthcare, where he talks about how the country can transition to a universal healthcare system while also reducing national healthcare costs.

 

Edward joins us to discuss the current healthcare crisis in the US and his universal healthcare proposal that has virtually no drawbacks. He shares stats and facts regarding healthcare in other countries and how the US compares. He explains why Bernie Sanders’ Medicare For All Bill could be bad for healthcare professionals and shares when he thinks the world will go back to a pre-COVID state. Edward also describes what readers can expect from reading his book and how it can help their healthcare finances.
