Dr. Atul Gawande, a surgeon who was named this week to head the company being formed by Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan Chase to trim employee healthcare costs, on Thursday cited surgery as the single biggest U.S. healthcare cost and said there are ways to both cut costs and improve patient care. Speaking in San Diego at the annual meeting of America's Health Insurance Plans, a health insurance trade association, Gawande also said that end-of-life care needs to take into account the wishes of patients, something which he said is now sorely lacking.
Omaha! Every time Warren Buffett is mentioned, I think of Peyton Manning's ardent line-of-scrimmage call and wonder if the wisdom of the Oracle is location-specific. To "lose" to the market by 280 basis points over a five-year period is really an unacceptable performance, and it shows the lack of exposure to technology, which is endemic to Berkshire. You don't need to go to Morningstar to know that Berkshire shares have lagged the Nasdaq by a huge amount over the past five years, and that is the problem with Buffett's investing style.
Dr. Atul Gawande, a surgeon who was named this week to head the company being formed by Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan Chase to trim employee healthcare costs, on Thursday cited surgery as the single biggest U.S. healthcare cost and said there are ways to both cut costs and improve patient care. Speaking in San Diego at the annual meeting of America's Health Insurance Plans, a health insurance trade association, Gawande also said that end-of-life care needs to take into account the wishes of patients, something which he said is now sorely lacking. Gawande, who practices general and endocrine surgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and as an author has made a name for himself as a critic of medical practices, said some of the focus on the high cost of health care in the United States is misplaced.
Atul Gawande, named to head a new health-care venture jointly formed by Amazon.com Inc., Berkshire Hathaway Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co., said he’s now in a position to reduce waste and improve medical treatment for a million workers. “We will come to a place where we can generate scalable solutions that change the practice of medicine,” Gawande said at the America’s Health Insurance Plans conference in San Diego on Thursday, a day after he was appointed chief executive officer of the health-care partnership. The not-for-profit startup aims to improve care and lower costs for the three companies by creating systems that connect complex medical services with patient counseling while reducing waste caused by irrelevant tests or costly treatment that doesn’t improve quality of life, Gawande said, citing his research as a medical journalist.
Dr. Atul Gawande, an accomplished surgeon, writer and Harvard professor, has been named the chief executive officer of a new health-care initiative started by Amazon.com Inc., Berkshire Hathaway Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. The new independent venture has as its goal improving health care for the three companies’ more than a million combined U.S. employees, as well as making it more cost-effective. “We said at the outset that the degree of difficulty is high and success is going to require an expert’s knowledge, a beginner’s mind, and a long-term orientation,” Amazon Chief Executive Jeff Bezos said in the Wednesday release.
