Mornings With Maria

Fox Business TV InterviewMaria Bartiromo is very interested in healthcare. I was fortunate to be able to discuss the subject with her and her team at 6:40 AM this morning (November 2, 2015) on Fox Business. It is hard to explain much in five minutes but, hopefully, I was able to add some value to the topic. Maria’s opening question was whether healthcare is part of the reason for the economy being weak. Needless to say, I said yes. As I wrote in Health Attitude, healthcare has been growing faster than other segments of the economy and is choking their growth. I also showed the AliveCor Mobile ECG attachment on my iPhone 6S+ as an example of how consumers can take more control of their help. I said people who track their health are healthier. Consumers need to ask more questions about tests and procedures and engage in comparison shopping. I also explained the concept of accountable care. See the full interview here.
