Kevin Krauth: Biggest Concern for Digital Health in 2018
On Tuesday we attended the BetterDoctor social mixer on the Embarcadero.
While there, I got a chance to catchup with Kevin Krauth, Co-Founder & CEO of Orderly Health.
Here’s the transcript from our conversation:
Kevin Krauth: My concern is that with all that’s changing on the political scene,the ACA going away and all the all the political battles over the ACA, I think it’s actually gonna give a lot of opportunity for us to realize how important it is to make sure that everybody is insured.
My hope is that the outgrowth of that will be that healthcare will be more driven by the consumer side. So you’ll have a lot more individuals who are taking ownership over their own care, realizing that their spending decisions actually matter and looking for insurance that’s important to match their needs.
Then ultimately getting to a place where we can revamp our insurance policy at the federal and state level in a way that actually makes sense for everyone, rather than having it be a political football that it’s been for the last several years.
Hoala Greevy: That’s great!
