You've heard many times that the health care system is broken. Maybe you've said it yourself. But what is the solution? It turns out that we don't actually want health CARE. We want HEALTH. That decoupling—between what we need and what the system provides—is tearing us apart physically, mentally, and politically. To make change, we need a new perspective guided by the voice of the people the system is supposed to serve, the expertise of the provider, and the unique role government can play to focus on keeping us healthy, while also allowing for innovation and choice in care if we get sick. In the midst of 2020 health care discussions, Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, an epidemiologist and former city health commissioner, walks us through how we as leaders in health and tech can be part of the solution.
