Aneesh Chopra, the former Chief Technology Officer of the White House, joined Pat Salber (@docweighsin) at 2014 HealthBeat Conference in San Francisco in late October. Aneesh is now the Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of a startup called Hunch Analytics. Before talking about his new company, they talked about the many changes taking place in healthcare including patient empowerment, advances in data access and analytics, payment and delivery system reform.

Aneesh notes that currently “too many people are getting care at the wrong time in the wrong place, and, in many cases they are getting the wrong level of care.” But, he goes on to say, “If you believe there is an opportunity to make the system work better for people, where else could you actually reduce costs and improve outcomes to the degree in which we can in healthcare.”
