Our American Healthcare System is in Transition
… and here is what you can do about it
This website is designed to address American healthcare in transition and assist those who have to navigate its perilous topography. Whether you are a provider of healthcare, a healthcare decision maker or the person actually wondering how you can get to that needed healthcare, we all need advocates.

The patient who receives the service
