48. Disrupting Healthcare with Dr. Mahek Shah: How Tech Companies, The Patient Experience, and Innovations are Paramount to Transforming the Healthcare Industry
The Disruptive Voice
In the US, many go bankrupt due to the extraordinary high costs in our healthcare system. On an annual basis, we spend around $3.6 trillion – or 18% of GDP – on healthcare, but what do we get in exchange? In this engaging episode, Dr. Mahek Shah discusses several topics at the heart of creating a more affordable and accessible healthcare industry: pricing prescription drugs, creating a better patient experience, and unleashing innovation through the power of technology.

Mahek has spent his career at the intersection of business, healthcare, and technology, working to help redesign, reimagine, and rehumanize healthcare. He's been at the frontier of advising organizations in moving to value-based care, understanding their Jobs To Be Done, and leveraging technology to deliver patient-centered care.
