’Get system out of way’ CEO says

Yahoo News, May 20, 2008
America Online founder Steve Case predicts that converging trends in public policy, technology and consumerism in healthcare will combine to simultaneously create disruption and opportunity, and ultimately lead to a revolution in American healthcare. Case, who now serves as chairman and CEO of Revolution Health, says that as a result, consumers need to overcome security paranoia much like they did in online financial transactions. He argues that once a secure, ubiquitous system is in place, patients and payors alike will be drawn to the financial efficiencies and clinical benefits of connected care.
