Favorite quotes of the episode: 

“We need to fix the bureaucracy of healthcare.   We spend 14% just on the billing and collection in the U.S. That’s more than $1000 for every family of four in the US. In Japan, for example, they spend less than 3% or $59 on billing.  We need to reduce the bureaucracy and fix costs so that we can improve outcomes.”

“62% of bankruptcies in America are due to healthcare costs.”

“Medical bills are often wrong around 15% of the time.”
