Healthcare Triage: What is health insurance, and why do you need it?

We had a soft launch last month, but the “actual” channel is now a go. Healthcare Triage is live:

Healthcare Triage is a series about healthcare. Dr. Aaron Carroll will explain healthcare policy, medical research, and answer a lot of other questions you may have about medicine, health, and healthcare. Not only that, the videos are going to be pretty fun. John Green will stop in regularly to have his hypochondria soothed by Aaron’s clear and engaging explanations. Healthcare Triage is made by the people who make Crash Course, mental_floss video, and The Art Assignment.

The list of episodes will be of great interest to readers of TIE (I’m counting the days until I can do the episode on survival rates versus mortality rates). But it’s our hope that this will help bring some of the health policy data, evidence, and knowledge that we discuss here to a larger audience. Plus, now we’ll have another place to send people when they ask us for more information about a number of topics.

This episode is on “What is health insurance, and why do you need it?”.

At this point, people are pretty much donating their time to this project. They believe in it that much. So I could really use your support. Go watch the video. Get your friends and family to watch it. Heck get people you don’t like to watch it. Share the link widely. Subscribe to the channel (there’s a button there for that), and ask others to subscribe. It’s our plan to release new videos every Sunday afternoon, but they will be around forever, of course.

We also appreciate feedback! I’m trying to answer comments over there (and there are a ton), but you can always reach me on Twitter, too.
