Very skeptical about healthcare ‘disruption’

Share this:


Kent Bottles, M.D., has talked with Alan J. Burgener, a former Iowa hospital executive, about  why Mr. Burgener is so skeptical that the Amazon-Berkshire Hathaway-JPMorgan Chase venture and the proposed CVS-Aetna merger might actually disrupt our dysfunctional healthcare system.

He concludes:  “Ultimately, it’s much more important for commentators and health policymakers to understand these ‘market realities’ of healthcare in the U.S. than it is for them to understand the inner workings of the latest alleged disruptive innovations.”
