Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF, www.cchfreedom.orgunveiled The Wedge of Health Freedom,’ a new initiative that points to a better way of doing health care that will allow doctors and patients to renew a personal relationship, while saving money and protecting privacy of patient data at the same time:

The creation of The Wedge of Health Freedom was a result of CCHF looking at the current state of health care: where high prices and government reporting are the norm; where one-size-fits-all treatments and narrow networks limit patient choices and tie doctors’ hands; where intrusive questionnaires and data-sharing without consent put patients’ privacy at risk; where an impersonal bureaucratic processes and managed care controls inhibit a true doctor-patient relationship and compromise care.
