Episode #106: The 2020 Presidential Election 'Oval Office' Episode
Dear Friends & Colleagues,
Welcome to episode #106 of Creating a New Healthcare. This week has been a historic one for our country. As votes continue to be counted at the time of this writing, I want to turn our attention to what will undoubtedly be a key component of POTUS’ work over the next four years - our national healthcare policy agenda.
This is the first time we’ve posted during a presidential election. But, it is not the first time we’ve tackled the POTUS question as it relates to healthcare. For those of you who have been listening to the podcast series this year, you’ll immediately recognize the question I’ve asked every guest this season. In this episode, it’s time for me to tackle this question.
It’s Thursday, Jan 21, 2021 - the day after inauguration of the President of the United States; and you find yourself in the oval office, sitting on the opposite couch from the POTUS and VPOTUS. (As an important aside, you are socially distanced; and you are all wearing masks.) POTUS has asked for your opinion - your thoughts, suggestions & recommendations on what this administration should be focusing on in regard to HC policy & policy deployment over the next 4 years. What are you going to say to them?
Listen to the podcast to discover the 5 Policy Principles I recommend to POTUS and the specific recommendations toward a solution for each. I hope you’ll listen with a discerning ear and let me know how you would answer this question.
Finally - I have a request of you. I need your help.
If you find value in this podcast series, please share it with as many colleagues as you can think to. I have heard from so many of you how valuable these episodes are to you; and if that’s the case, then it’s critically important that you spread the word about Creating a New Healthcare.
Until Next Time, Be Well
