P.S.Y.C.H. is a universal health care approach that stands for Practical Solutions Yielding Comprehensive Healthcare. Created by a P.S.Y.C.H.-iatrist in East Texas who was concerned about the fact that the present healthcare system allows non-clinical forces to come between patients and providers.
According to Dr. Brian Dixon, “We have the opportunity to create universal healthcare for every person in the United States. I built P.S.Y.C.H. to be democracy in action. It is based on the best of American ideals: freedom of choice, responsible capitalism, personal responsibility, and quality through competition. P.S.Y.C.H. provides universal access to affordable healthcare to every person, regardless of age, employment, sexual orientation, gender identity, location, mental health, military experience, and citizenship. P.S.Y.C.H. promotes mind and body wellness from the cradle to the grave.”
According to Dr. Dixon, the government, pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies, hospitals, unreasonable social expectations, medical education costs, employers, lawyers and documentation/HIPAA requirements are all barriers to accessing quality healthcare for many patients. P.S.Y.C.H., as seen at www.changehealth.today, will allow patients to easily access reliable healthcare services without the confusion and waste that currently exist.
The funds raised by the IndieGoGo campaign will be used to create a whiteboard animation video that succinctly and creatively conveys the major parts of P.S.Y.C.H. in a visually engaging format. This whiteboard animation can then be used as part of a larger marketing campaign targeting members of Congress and citizens who have the power to make changes to the present system.
According to Dr. Dixon, “Our inefficient and unfair healthcare delivery system does not favor the patient, and everyone will be a patient at some point in his or her life. It behooves us to build a better system. I hope that every person that has ever experienced a delay in care, an expensive premium, the loss of a policy, a confusing explanation of benefits, a delay at the pharmacy, confusion of prior authorization, the denial of healthcare claim, problems with COBRA or poor access to prior health records will donate towards this first step.”
As seen at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/p-s-y-c-h-real-universal-healthcare-reform, the IndieGoGo campaign offers an “I like P.S.Y.C.H.” bumper sticker for a pledge of $200. Individuals can also make donations in other amounts.

P.S.Y.C.H. is a systematic change in health care delivery designed by a Texas psychiatrist to benefit the average patient. Now, the creator has launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds for the production of a whiteboard animation video for promotional purposes.
