Who will become the Healthcare Disruptor?

One of the major problems facing humanity is the ever-increasing cost of healthcare.

People believe the healthcare system is broken. Perhaps it is not broken but is doing exactly what a business is intended to do, make a profit, and sick people are good for business! When you are a healthy ‘non-patient,’ the mega-business conglomerate of pharmaceutical companies, medical schools, Insurance companies and hospitals gets no reward.

“It is more profitable for medical suppliers to produce products consumers use for the rest of their lives than to make products that a consumer might use only once.   Invariably, this means [developing] products that treat the symptoms of diseases rather than the cause or the cure.”   – Paul Zane Pilzer

Where, now, will the American people find a champion willing and able to [change our present course]? Where will we find a man with the temerity to face these latter-day “untouchables,” to stand in the path of this juggernaut and cry “Halt”?

When he is found and takes the job and does it, he will never be forgotten, for he will have brought the American people more [health and] financial independence and self-respect than a hundred years of [current health-care]” -Norman F. Dacey

The challenges of healthcare won’t be solved by the government and certainly not the existing healthcare system. It will require someone who’s on the outside, an entrepreneur, re-thinking, re-imagining why we can’t absolutely prevent, or cure things; certainly not what’s being done today – treating every health problem as a chronic condition symptomatically managed by prescription medication.

“To think we are able is almost to be so; to determine upon attainment is frequently attainment itself. Thus earnest resolution has often seemed to have about it almost a savor of omnipotence.” – Samuel Smiles

We are grateful that you are a part of this aspiring movement, and if you and I can transform one person’s whole life with these products, then one by one we shall transform everything!
