Juggernauts Enter Health Care

Three of America’s leading companies have sent shock waves through the health care industry by announcing a partnership to serve the health care needs of their vast employee networks.

Host Hal Scherz, M.D. will explore the possibilities and problems of these juggernauts upending health care for millions of lives.

From the announcement:
Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A, BRK.B) and JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) announced today that they are partnering on ways to address healthcare for their U.S. employees, with the aim of improving employee satisfaction and reducing costs.

The three companies, which bring their scale and complementary expertise to this long-term effort, will pursue this objective through an independent company that is free from profit-making incentives and constraints. The initial focus of the new company will be on technology solutions that will provide U.S. employees and their families with simplified, high-quality and transparent healthcare at a reasonable cost.
