Interview with David Nash

I had a fascinating interview with David Nash, MD, Founding Dean of the College of Population Health at Jefferson. Our discussion included everything from Patient Centered David NashMedical Homes (PCMH), Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), medical errors and unnecessary services, to value based care and of course population health.  As David said, perhaps its time for Doctors to “Look in the Mirror.”

There is so much going on in healthcare with the recent Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JP Morgan announcement to the CVS purchase of Aetna, all roiling the healthcare market. So what does it mean and where might we go for solutions?

Listen in.
