This Week Health

April 12, 2021: The US has the best healthcare in the world in terms of doctors, hospitals and pharmaceutical and medical device companies but certainly not the best outcomes. 30 million Americans do not have any insurance. Anne Weiler joins Bill to discuss US medical costs, Haven, remote work, work-life balance, cybersecurity, equities and the JP Morgan Chase Annual Report. Banks are facing competitive threats from Fintech, startups and other digital companies.­­­ Will the same thing happen in healthcare? Will providers trying to hire doctors not be able to get them because they've all gone to alternative companies with a better quality of life? What about the amount of time and money the healthcare industry spends on the EHR? No other industry does that. How can we shift the focus to the patient, the community and efficiency? Is remote working making us more healthy or less healthy? Are we paying enough attention to women's health? Is Femtech the next big thing? Can we build the financial models to support the large and diverse population that is female startups?
