Jonathan Bush, the co-founder and CEO of  electronic health vendor athenahealth, fears that the current healthcare environment is not conducive to  innovation. He criticized the Affordable Care Act, for, as he asserts, slowing improvements in cost management and discouraging innovators from entering healthcare.

“My biggest fear is that we won’t successfully attract those new economy, engineers, entrepreneurs, that the weight of the regulatory burden, the government involvement, of the huge established health systems [are] making it harder for entrepreneurs to get in and get playing,” he said.
