Manage episode 254798066 series 2329441
In the US, many go bankrupt due to the extraordinary high costs in our healthcare system. On an annual basis, we spend around $3.6 trillion – or 18% of GDP – on healthcare, but what do we get in exchange? In this engaging episode, Dr. Mahek Shah discusses several topics at the heart of creating a more affordable and accessible healthcare industry: pricing prescription drugs, creating a better patient experience, and unleashing innovation through the power of technology. For instance, what if going to the doctor was akin to the experience of visiting an Apple store?
Mahek has spent his career at the intersection of business, healthcare, and technology, working to help redesign, reimagine, and rehumanize healthcare. He's been at the frontier of advising organizations in moving to value-based care, understanding their Jobs To Be Done, and leveraging technology to deliver patient-centered care.
Listen now to hear from Dr. Shah as Katie Zandbergen, Community Manager at The Forum for Growth & Innovation, hosts this timely and lively conversation.
