ZocDoc-Find a Doctor App!

I was doing my usual weekly reading and learning, looking for health care products that provide real value to my followers, when I learned of this app called ZocDoc!

ZocDoc is a free app you can install on your phone.  When you need to find a doc that takes your insurance, just put in your zipcode and the type of doctor, along with your insurance network name, and the app will return a list of docs in your area, and when their next available appointment time is.  You also get to read some info about the doctor, and look at reviews from other patients.  Many ZocDoc doctors also use txt and email communication with their patients, another huge bonus.  It’s all about improving care, and ZocDoc is helping the movement.

CEOs Guide to Restoring the American Dream

I’ve been following Dave Chase on Twitter for some time now.  Dave Chase is the author of https://healthrosetta.org .

If you’ve ever thought you knew how to fix the high cost of American Healthcare, think again.  While the problem is complex, it certainly is not insurmountable, but the solution involves plenty of training and education.  Dave Chase’s book, CEO’s Guide to Restoring the American Dream is now on preorder, and you don’t need to be a CEO to read it.  Any American who wants to part of the solution should take the time to educate themselves on the root causes of health care inflation, and solutions recommended by Dave Chase, and the people who inspired him. Americans who use health care, benefit advisers, politicians, CFOs, CPAs, CEOs, financial advisers, or just any one who might have an interest in working towards a solution together should invest in reading Dave Chase’s non-partisan, practical  guide.

Benefit Advisors are currently making a difference, helping employers to drastically lower costs and provide employees with far better benefits than the norm.  But every American should invest in obtaining a basic understanding of where we’ve been, and the direction we need to go, to have a healthcare system that surpasses our expectations as health care consumers.

I recommend Dave Chase’s book as a good place to start.  Who will join me in spreading the word?
