Millions of people across the country don’t have access to proper healthcare. The results can be devastating. Given only a handful of expensive options, patients are faced with the possibility of bankruptcy, and don’t even have the necessary information to make educated decisions about their treatment. Navigating the healthcare system can be a nightmare. But one person is changing all that. Meet Meghan Nechrebecki, founder and CEO of Heath Care Transformation, an organization centered around improving health outcomes, reducing healthcare costs, and empowering people to take control of their health.
Meghan was always passionate about healthcare. She wanted to be a doctor, but while doing her Master’s in public health, she saw the issues patients are faced with: lack of access, no information, unaffordable insurance. She decided she didn’t want to be another cog in the wheel, she wanted to fix the system from the inside. Instead of going to medical school, she began working with insurance companies, health startups and even the UCL health system. Through this, she saw just how the healthcare system lets people down. She also spotted a huge opportunity for prevention - because many of the diseases we face can be avoided through lifestyle changes.
The US healthcare system is basically centered around sick care. Little attention is given to preventative care, or helping people lead healthier lives so they don’t get sick in the first place. And let’s face it, being healthy these days is a real battle. We drive everywhere, we sit all day, we’re stressed, we eat a standard American diet. Meghan is trying to shift that focus. She works with businesses and individuals to spread the health message as far and wide as possible.
Her 6-Week Wellness Transformation Program gives people the tools they need to achieve health success, whatever that looks like to them. It’s entirely online, which makes it super easy to fit into even the busiest schedule. You’ll get access to a wellness coach, and modules cover everything from where you are now, to nutrition, understanding calories, choosing the best ingredients, food quality, meal prep, sustainability over time, healthy habits…
Meghan has also authored My Health Care Transformation Handbook, an absolutely gorgeous tiffany blue handbook to take on your journey to better health. In there, you’ll find a ton of information about prevention, managing your clinical encounters, how to document your medication, what happens with hospital stays, advance care planning, and health insurance. All the tools you need to achieve your greatest health.
What are the issues with the US healthcare system and how can it be changed?
Going forward, healthcare will move in the right direction, thanks to people like Meghan who are working tirelessly to make the healthcare system fair, and health-focused. Big up girlfriend.
