Episode 77: Healthcare's Taboo Topic
On today’s show, host Dr. Steve Ambrose shared candid thoughts about one of the biggest taboo topics in healthcare. A subject that is rarely addressed by many in healthcare—at least, not in any public conversations.
This topic is the growing epidemic of mass unaffordability in healthcare. A challenge existing at epidemic levels across America, and linked to systemic challenges such as pricing. Unaffordability happens in whispers, and it’s a very real social determinant of health—a vulnerability impacting millions of people across race, age, including those with and without health insurance.
This “hot take” should leave you with deep questions and greater awareness. Perhaps you’ll be the one to figure out this very real and longstanding challenge for healthcare—and the health of our nation.
