Investing in Computational Care Startups: A Preface

An admirable goal, but the health care problem in the US is an economic problem, not a technology one.

Every other 1st and 2nd world nation has solved this problem via national health care.

More technology won’t change the economics of fragmented purchasing, opaque pricing and enormous overhead costs of the present American health care system.

Only in America is the price of any given health care related spend a mystery until the bill appears.

Only in America are there 2 medical billing folks for every doctor.

Only in America are people forced to seek out new health insurance at least 3 times in their life: when they leave home, when they get fired or change jobs, and when they retire.

Only America spends 18% of GDP on health care.
