Becoming More Health-System Independent

This blog has been quiet for a while, and for a reason. We will undergo a bit of a repurposing.

Our major focus in the recent past was the implementation of Obamacare, with commentary on the major developments as they occurred. Going forward, however we will become more focused on our core message: People should become more independent in managing their health.

We are not suggesting that people stop seeing their doctor. We are saying “be informed, take control, know you rights”.

In that vein, we have published an expanded set of useful health care links, built around a theme:

To increase your level of independence, become informed in these nine general areas:

1) Understand your personal situation
2) Understand who is treating you
3) Understand the finances- yours
4) Understand the finances- theirs
5) Understand your alternatives
6) Explore online tools to help yourself
7) Understand your rights
8) Plan for the future
9) Know where to get help

Within this framework, we share over 100 links to governmental organizations, insurers, foundations, associations, news articles, databases and additional high quality sources as we become aware of them.

And as additional functionality becomes available on our site (today you will find this blog, a discussion forum, health community resource sections and an online health record), we will share that information here. The new, expanded links can be found at Health Tactics Resource Links

We hope you find them to be useful.
