Video: Transforming Healthcare by Embracing Failure

Long video, but interesting content and discussion.

Transforming the economics of our healthcare system starts with the individual, shared Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes: “What’s fundamental to changing [health] outcomes is personal accountability.” Holmes shared her company’s approach to embracing failure constantly and their long-term vision of making people’s lives better around the world. She also encouraged students to find their passion: “Find what you love so deeply that if you were to get fired, you would do it again because it’s your vision and calling.”

  • Highmark customers feel manipulated by Penn:

    For months it has run TV commercials and newspaper ads warning that Highmark insurance customers could lose access to in-network treatment at UPMC on Jan. 1 if they don’t switch insurance plans. Now the company, according to an email Friday from its chief medical officer to its physicians, will launch an outreach campaign this week to tell the Highmark customers who stayed put that they — and their insurance dollars — are welcome at UPMC, so long as those customers are currently under UPMC care.
