Richard Rivera

HealthTrac, LLC
Owner and CEO
I am a graduate of the Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Public Health and I have dedicated my career to fixing healthcare. It is the most serious financial issue facing the poor and working class in the USA. It has been progressively impoverishing working Americans for the past half century and the costs are now beyond bearable. Our children have been harnessed to pay $500,000 during their working years at todays cost and it is the largest expenditure they face; it is beyond shelter, food, and the other basics of subsistence. We have the worst quality care in the industrialized world and ten percent of all deaths in the US can be attributed to medical errors. Healthcare is the most successful monopoly ever invented and the complexity has frustrated all consumer efforts to fix the industry in their own behalf. The most oppressive financial burden in the USA for working Americans is healthcare. My goal is to elucidate the issue and give consumers the conceptual framework they need fix the system, assume ownership, democratize it, and rescue themselves and their children. The monopoly that controls healthcare is so efficient that the average worker never imagines an alternative to the existing paradigm.
