Changing the Healthcare Space with Voice Technology with Dan Messina Co-Founder & EVP of HandsFree Health

"Now Dan. You've been in healthcare for over thirty five years. You've been the CEO of Magellan. House the CFO AETNA HOUSE. And you served as a partner of health advocate which showed for nearly ten one hundred times. Excuse me of the outside capital invested. And I'm curious. Why did you begin a journey into healthcare so many years ago and then why in the last few years did you decide that the next right move was to found lead a voice based healthcare company? A great question. I mean I think that I wish I had some really glorious story to tell you but the fact that matter results in the right place at the right time I had been with AETNA and Cigna in the late eighties early nineties and during that timeframe there was a big transition from multi line insurance coverage to healthcare and healthcare began to grow rapidly and I was right in the middle of that so gaming opportunity to be part of the process of transitioning CIGNA and Aetna from their multi line offerings to just healthcare and you know put me in a healthcare world. Which was you know? Maybe a lot of sense balance sheet perspective but I don't think necessarily it was beneficial for the end users perspective and all these companies grew rapidly and You know worked for them but I think the members found themselves facing a lot of difficulties in trying to figure out the healthcare process. That's what led to help advocate about twenty years ago me and others from the large health plan companies realize that the to get through the healthcare process was nothing easy and we thought whom better to help them figure out their way through the maze that people to help contribute to the maze and so we started health advocate opposite. Frankly couldn't believe how successful that company became basis form. It was simply a company that was providing any response and you healthcare question. Any individual may have nobody that twenty year span at grew from two forty four million members with over a thousand employees and yes we were able to sell it for about one hundred times. The invested capital was which was obviously very impressive. That then let me two hands. Free health with my colonel the other CO founder of the company hands. Free Health is really in some respects like health advocate where it's responsive to questions that people may have but it does in a voice recognition fashion voice responses service. We think that voice response is a direction that the whole country's going and healthcare is kind of catching up but getting there right now and of course. Healthcare has unique difficulties voice response because of the terminology and being able to convert that terminology voice. You Know Bill Gates. I think twenty years ago the healthcare the content is key and I agree with that and and Between the content and the voice. There's no simple task and I think that's one reason. Healthcare is behind. But if you look at all the stats. Everyone's growing dramatically voice annoys people are increasing utilization voice so it makes sense to have health be part of the growth model and that's where hands free health does come into

The Pharmacist Is Out: Supermarkets Close Pharmacy Counters

"To be easy enough to pick up medication and prescriptions at the pharmacy inside the grocery store but more grocery chains or closing their pharmacy counters as they lose the battle would large drugstore chains in Wall Street Journal. Reporter Sharon trollip is here with some details so Sharon for a longtime grocers saw in-house pharmacies as a way to bring in shoppers. Not only did they bring in chapters. Were relatively easy to start up. There was low capital cost. Aw there you know didn't require a lot of employees so they were a really good way to bring in shoppers and generate some more revenue. But then the big boys in the form of the big drugstore chains came to Yes and that changed everything not only did they have new competitors as these big chains. And we're talking about. CVS AND WALGREENS bought up smaller chains They became bigger. They get more market power and then. CVS in particular started buying other pieces of the healthcare industry. CVS Now owns at the insurer. Aetna it has its own pharmacy benefit manager which is a company that negotiates prices so these big chains have a lot of power now and so these individual drugstores is part of the larger chains have really become one stop pharmacy shopping places for for consumers lately particularly in the last year or so both CVs and Walgreens have been working to make their drugstores a one stop shop for patients really and particularly patients who have chronic diseases. So not only. Can you get your drugs and get a blood pressure test. Plus you might. If you're diabetic you might be able to get your annual tests. You can get advice from you at clinics where you can get medical advice diagnostics. And and they're only this is only begotten services are expanding but it's also a sign of consumers changing shopping habits as well consumers are getting more and more of their goods online grocery is one of the last things to to shift to online but it is shifting to online and also consumers are getting their prescriptions more and more in ninety day chunks. So they just aren't going to physically pick them up as much but grocery chains like Kroger have fared a little better than some other regional grocery grocery companies. Sure because a lot of this is really about market power so kroger is the biggest grosser in the country and it's one of the biggest pharmacy chains So one of the things that happens with the bigger change. CVS walgreens even Kroger. They can negotiate deals to be preferred providers and they they can shut out an entire regional grocery chain in this type of deal. Kroger has a little bit more half's than a regional chain with thirty stores you know. There's a really tough balance Alan's here because consumers want very intimate service. They want that mom and pop feel and they had that in the smaller drugstores but then we just talked. What about the changing shopping habits and something has to give? Yeah and I think this is an area where grocery chains in particular are disadvantaged even two independent it. mom-and-pop drugstores now these independent stores have been closing in legions as well. But you'll find a lot of loyalty to the hundred year old chain on on main street whereas you know these grocery chains follow a little bit in the middle ground. I mean there are a little more personal a little home but a lot of people just aren't really that attached. It's to the grocery store pharmacy. Alright that's Wall Street Journal reporter Sharon Turnip with US Sharon. Thanks for coming on the

The stock over the course of the year has is not performed strongly but you have picked up pretty sharply over the last nine months and if we compared to what's been happening with walgreens shares. It's a much different story. They've been under quite a bit of pressure as there's been concerns concerns about what's happening in the pharmacy so it does look from that relative perspective like you guys made the right move by pivoting. What have you heard from starboard when they came in what? What are the conversations that they've started? Well Becky I'm not gonNA comment on market speculation.

Yesterday in early June we laid out our strategy and more important the path forward over the next three years and the stock spin up about forty percent since that meeting. Larry when I I look at your stock your trading more with the AETNA purchase your trading more like a united healthcare trading as as opposed to a drugstore company. How should investors at home think about your company and how to value well Tom? We are a healthcare company. Today that journey began many years ago and we celebrated five years. Here's this past September of eliminating the sale of tobacco. was there with you. I was on the Stock Exchange for third. We rang the bell. It was it was a great day and at a day day that made us all proud was fun and we look back. You know five years ago. It was absolutely the right decision. It's open doors for partnership for acquisitions. Obviously Asleep the pinnacle of that is the acquisition and We are healthcare company today and and we have an opportunity putting the consumer at the center of our strategy you to transform the way healthcare is delivered in our country of of CVS moved very quickly in terms of saying they weren't going to sell tobacco. I remember at the time that was a little bit of a controversial move although so it has seemed to pay dividends for. Cvs what do you think about. What's happening with vaping right now becky? It's a great question and I can remember the question we got back then was well. Will you carry the e cigarettes and yeah I remember going into A A retail establishment that was selling the products and and I saw the device vice with the Hello Kitty logo in the bubble gum flavored liquid. And you know it it absolutely raise the question in terms of we'll wait a minute. What are we doing here and five years later we see what has happened? post the tobacco announcement. We started a campaign. We are working with community partners. Be the first create the first tobacco free generation. We've made a lot of progress. We have more than two hundred college and university campuses that are tobacco free today as a result of that program. But you vaping is taking us backwards you see some of the statistics vaping up more than seventy percent with school aged children and I saw some stats recently. That more within seventy percent of high school students that are vaping will turn to tobacco upon graduation. So we've got a reverse try

Welcome to brain stuff. A production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff. Lauren Vogel bomb here. Some animals have a reputation that's hard to shake take a camel spider. Many Americans are familiar with them based on photos that came out of the Iraq war in the early two thousands a giant, desert spider, with a leg span somewhere between the size of a pack of cigarettes and a full grown man's calf though. The latter one turned out to be a trick of forced perspective. There were rulers, they enter the desert screaming and jumping on camels they would hide an ambush in sleeping bags ready to inject you with venom, but US military personnel are not the first to tell stories about the camel spider in South Africa. There's sometimes called beard-trimmers, because some people believe that if you sleep on the ground camel, spiders, will come trim your hair in your sleep and use it to line, their nests in parts of North Africa. And the Middle East legend has it that they choose the bellies of camels until their intestines fallout. So they can eat them or that they can lay their eggs in their stomachs. None of this is true, of course, for starters, camel, spiders, are not spiders at all. All but solid few goods, these arachnids live on every continent, except in article, and ustralia and all one thousand one hundred and fifty species have eight legs and two body sections, like spiders, scorpions ticks, and mites, but they're different enough to belong to their own order. Secondly, they are aggressive, but they're also none venomous, and the large jaws of most species can't even breakthrough human skin much less camels belly the largest camel, spider has a leg span of around six to eight inches. That's fifteen to twenty centimeters, which is bid for a spider, but it's not horror movie territory. And they seem to take little to no observable interest in human hair. We spoke with Christy Rettig, founder of the bug chicks educational company that uses arthropods to teach young people about social issues like prejudice racism, educational, potential and personal development. She said that thing about sell a few goods is you don't really need to make stuff up about them for them to be fascinating. I was in Kenya. When I first saw one and I went to catch it and it ran up the side of the wall. Right up to my I height it. Reared. Back in rubbed its jaws together to strangulate. Some people say they scream, but it's more of a hissing rasping noise, it had such an attitude. I just fell in love. It would seem difficult to fall in love with an Iraq did with these stage presence of a pro wrestler, and the body of an animal who's parts were scavenged from the invertebrate salvage yard but such is the allure of the camel spider Radic said if you do a rapid count of what appears to be legs. They look like they have ten legs. But their first pair actually mouth parts called pep helps I kind of think of them as mouth hands, they helped facilitate bringing prey into their big jaws when they run they use them, kind of, like antenna or long legs in the front. They also have mouth clause called Chelsea's which are used for a dizzying variety of purposes, one of which seems to be transferring packets of sperm, for male to female camel, spiders, most sell a few gets are nocturnal extremely territorial and top predators in arid ecosystems. They eat other predators in the same size range, as them or a bit larger. But even eat each other, they don't have venom. It's unnecessary because their jaws are so powerful. They can manipulate their food through their mouths by sawing their prey back and forth like an old timey cartoon character eating a cob of corn. Solid few goods are also wildly fast able to reach speeds of about ten miles per hour that's sixteen kilometers per hour and seemed to be able to run for as long as you care to chase them. But with that comes metabolism that requires nearly constant fuelling. So they eat a lot, but that doesn't necessarily explain ones. L A few good behavior mass aunt assassinations for some reason, camel, spiders, will sometimes go after an ants, nest just tearing answered half left and right until they're surrounded by an enormous heap of rented, aunt carcasses some scientists think maybe they're killing ants to save them as a stack for later. But read it published a paper in two thousand fourteen about the diet of solid few goods, and she and her co author found that they don't, particularly, like eating ants another explanation for this behavior. Could be that there. Trying to clear out the ant nest in order to find a nice place to escape the desert sun. But it's really a mystery as to why they do this Rettig pointed out that another possibility though. Is that camel spiders attack Aetna's to get the larva and pupa inside? She explained these don't bite and are super soft squishy little protein and fat bombs. But you can add the mass murder of ants to the long list of things. Scientists don't understand about solid fuel goods. But remember, even though they act wild they can't hurt you Radic said just because something is a predator or even defensive or aggressive. It doesn't make it a bad or mean animal cell. A few kids have so much, great attitude, and they're soft and fuzzy when you pet one, it's like, petting a little mouse. A little demon mouse.

"I'm always fascinated by creative souls. You know, I I think that there's something very special about creative people. And I guess Allen Canada's too because he's the founder and CEO of track. Maven a software analytics firm whose clients have included Microsoft Mary at Saks Fifth Avenue. Home depot. Aetna, Honda and on and on. He's also been on the thirty under thirty list for both Incan Forbes and his new book is out. It's called the creative curve and Allen had the opportunity to look at some of the most creative people that we know in our in our culture right now to find out what makes them tick. And it includes interviews with so many in Alan, welcome. Congratulations on this book. Thanks for having me. So how many people did you interview for this book? So here you twenty five people and everyone from Patrick and Paul songwriting duo behind. Do you have an ad LaLa land and the greatest showman. Two Michelin star chefs billionaire sort of everything you could imagine in between. Wow. What was there a thread that every single one of them had? And by the way, don't forget the flavor team at Ben and Jerry's. Who are all surprisingly skinny that's kind of shocking. Joe one of the thread thought was so interesting was that we think of creativity in this way where it's almost inaccessible. But the things that these people do to be extraordinary is really the ordinary people who do something extra book. It's all about that extra. What is it that they do there's a couple of keeping found one of them? But it's all over and over again, creative are also some of the biggest consumers of their field. You know, we think about consumption is almost. Creativity right consumers consume craters create. But actually, he's really great creative. One of the things they do go very deep in their vertical consume everything. Oh, I lost. You did. We lose him. Just my feet. He's not talking though. Right allen. Are you there? We have to get him back. Hopefully, we can get Alan back. He was saying consumption. So he explores how the science behind the why consumption of information can provide your own flashes of genius. And then imitation. This is an interesting one. I wish you were with us to talk a little bit about this. But imitation creatives have to find a way to add just the perfect amount of novelty to do this. They engage in something that may seem surprising surprising invitation. He said they also have creative communities and Alan shows. How building a community? Oh, alan. I'm just reading some of the different initiatives that the threads of imitation creative communities. Yeah. To what are the things? That's so interesting is that. Yeah. You think of creative of these solo geniuses, but actually the best creatives work within community, Steve Jobs, and Steve Wozniak had multiple employees from day one. And so we have that they'd be as creative as doing it all them cells dangerous because the best creative self aware about their weaknesses, and they go, and they find other people who can support the better. So alan. You you say in this in this new book of yours sat. These are. So there's a sense of community. There's an opportunity to see what's been successful for mothers by imitation. Their ferocious can can they are ferocious with your consumption. What's the what's the last piece that you? That. They don't understand that. They're not. They're not going to a writer's cabin and writing the book. You hear stories like that? But the vast majority of creatives go through this laborious process, if it's a book of its rewriting the song, it's constantly refining and refining chefs who were on menu stand up comedian to work out their jokes for months and months. So we have this idea is creativity at very linear better reality, create anything. But in the best creativity comes from that refinement, and from that editing getting it to beat at right idea at the right time for the audience by getting in front of people getting that feedback not creating within evacuate.

Health insurance company is going to be a problem. But apparently, the Justice department has approved with some conditions the merger of CVS the drug chain. And Aetna the insurance company. What do you see as a healthcare provider coming out of this? Good bad. What does it mean in the marketplace? Well, I just hope we have more and more choices. I think that competition is so good, and helpful. It makes us all work harder. Better more efficiently. It helps the consumer get lower prices. And you know, I'm not I'm not an expert enough to know, whether this is going to impact in a in a good or bad way the competition. But I just hope that this was looked at and will encourage efficiency and not discouraged competition when you prescribe medicines here a follow up on where. They're your clients your patients, go to get them filled down. My we have all the choices. But my experience is that, you know, the patients don't ask me where I should go. They all go where they want to go. And we ask them where should we send the prescription? Right. That's usually have on file and a lot of it has to do with their insurance. And they shopped around and the insurers have a relationship with a particular pharmacy. And that's what happens. So that's what's going to happen. Big time that CVS at Dr Ken krone house with Doug.

"S. one. The US Justice department has cleared the way for a merger between CVS and Aetna, clearing a major hurdle as the two companies look to finalize their nearly seventy billion dollar deal. The two companies made concessions ahead of this week's approval to get the green light from antitrust regulators. Joining us now via Skype from Los Angeles is Wall Street Journal reporter on Matthews. So on a CBS and Aetna did have to make some changes, including Aetna's planned divestiture of its drug business. Tell us some more about the changes the companies had to make to gain this regulatory approval will that is really the main one Aetna will have to sell its Medicare drug plan business to another company. Well, care health plans that was really the major area of overlap between Aetna and CVS in terms of their business. So that's really the big concession that the Justice department was looking for. Antitrust enforcers were concerned because both CVS and Aetna are major players in Medicare. Drug plant business CVS actually has the largest market sure of any company in that business with around six point. One million members in Aetna is number five. So the concern was that in certain markets, if they came together in both held onto their businesses, there would be a reduction in competition. Now, with Aetna's business being divest to third party. Justice must feel that competition will be conserved at at the level that we see now despite this major deal. So now that the Justice department has given its approval, what are the final steps ahead for CVS and Aetna to tie up this merger? They still need some approvals from state regulators, although really the federal approval from the Justice department was seen as the big hurdle in the highest profile issue they've, they've said they have many of the state approvals, but there are still some pending. And as this deal has been in motion, there's also some ramped up competition in the healthcare space signals planned acquisition of Express Scripts comes to mind. And and is similar in that it will also be a merger between a health insurance company and a pharmacy benefits manager. How were these two separate mergers alike and how are they different? Well, both of them reflect a larger trend seeing in healthcare of consolidation and particularly consolidation where companies are getting multiple different businesses kind of under one roof. So in the case of CVS and Aetna, you're seeing obviously a huge drugstore operator with a large pharmacy benefit operation buying a health insurer. So they will have sort of all three of those major lines of business in the case of Cigna. That's a major health insurance and they are purchasing a pharmacy benefit manager. So again, bringing insurance and pharmacy benefit management under the same roof. That's again a broader trend where you've seen over the years, United health, which is the owner of the biggest US health insurer has been purchasing healthcare providers, Dr groups, surgery centers, and others, and they, in addition. United health is also the parent of a pharmacy benefit managers. So again, the broader trend is multiple healthcare businesses under one roof as these companies conglomerate and Howard deals like this, changing the healthcare landscape for consumers. Well, we'll just have to see how it plays out. But what Aetna and CVS have said is that they seek to create a more seamless consumer-friendly setup, where maybe you can get some of your healthcare out of your CVS store. You might also be able to resolve questions about your health benefits. If you have an Aetna plan, the promise that they're making is that they will make things easier for consumers and also bring down costs that's Wall Street Journal reporter on a map us joining us via Skype from Los Angeles.

I don't know, you know, ever since I got, you know, I thought it was funny at the time but ever since I got that doodoo doll by PO box. Really, not going very great. You know, it's been raining every three days all summer, you know, just my heart. I had a shot we have five shows on eight terabyte hard drive. They crashed. You lose them. All we lost them. All we sent them to a forensic. These guys do forensic recovery city FBI, we sent to Texas, and and all the components would fry they had to replace the components with I Daniel drives parts, and then they when they booted it up all all everything was gone. It was all fried. So so we lost five shows worth of material the entire ending of our season, including our Halloween special, just vapor vapor is who do you who do you think sent you? The voodoo doll. I don't I don't know. I I'm thinking JC. But you know, he might have been you never know. He's not even I don't think he's that diabolical. I know if he's that's smart. But, but he he, you know, he he does he doesn't like me too much. I, you know, so I don't like anybody. That's true. That's true. It wasn't even like his girlfriend who left with some. Right, right. I was Pringle. Is that what it is? Aetna. Aetna. Aetna Pringle, exactly. Very good. So I'm ca-. I was cataloging number of spooky movies. And I wanted to go through them with you big anniversaries there. There are what is your favorite, though, your personal favorite all-time horror film? It's really tough it fluctuates. If you ask me every day, I'll probably say something else right now. I'm kinda falling in love with night of the living dad again just because it's the fiftieth anniversary. But there's a lot of them that I really enjoy. I re-, you know. So it's tough. I I really liked plan nine from outer space. It's a guilty pleasure. I really loved the blob. I know that sounds corny since I'm the host of blob, Ben solid movie. I think it's a great movie. What do you think movies like Halloween? The exorcist the shining the conjuring and things like that. You know, I like those movies. I think the shining is actually a an excellent ghost story. You know, in addition to being I guess, it's not I mean, I don't know if I classify shining the slasher, but it's certainly a horror film, and and and and a and a and a and a good one. And I think it's what I mean forty years old or something now. Right. You know, these these are these modern horror films are pretty higher. You know, the ring is twenty years old. You know? So, you know, it's. You know, a lot of them are are are, you know, ho- hold up pretty well with age. And I I really I think Halloween the first Halloween. Is really a pretty suspenseful movie. And Donald pleasant is really excellent. As kind of like, the captain Ahab trying to stop this. You know, maniacal killer, actually, not even maniacal. That's the one thousand nine hundred seventy eight nineteen seventy eight is is the fortieth anniversary of the original Halloween. You magin it's been that long. Gosh. And John carpenter who, of course, gave us the remake of the thing and escape from New York and a bunch of other. Or or films science fiction? The original concept was that it was going to be an anthology is that every a wound. They would do a different theme or different types of scary movie in the first story was called the babysitter killers. And and there was a babysitter killer. And that was the that was the Michael Myers story story kicked up and the character became so popular the mask he's wearing they were trying to come up with a scary mask. And and what they ended up doing was taking a William Shatner, Star Trek mask and spray painting. It white. That's William Shatner, mascot keeps wearing. I wonder how Bill feels about that. Yeah. I don't know. But you know, I, and so what you know, the fact that it blank, you know, expression on the mask and not deliberately scary face. You know, I think that that made it more more scary. You know, I think a lot of times they newer movies. They tried to hard. You're talking about the conjuring and some of their in that family films. There's Annabel which no the original doll that the warrants have in their basement full of. Object is raggedy Ann dollar. We all know what raggedy Ann looks like. And the one that they had ended up doing in the movie they tried to make it look scary. It looks like something out of spirit Halloween. And it's just it's it's you know, no-one would trust this doll for two seconds. You know, they're like, oh what a beautiful dog. It's like horrific looking right off the bat. You know, it's much scarier when it's something you would least expect, you know, no, one would think that they're a little raggedy and all is gonna gonna try to possess them or haunt them. I coming up on fifty years Rosemary's, baby. Can you believe that? Starring me that either classic to. She was just almost a kid when she started in that movie. She was she was you know, and that was kind of had kind of a controversial sort of mod look with short hair, she Frank Sinatra's protege. And that's true that didn't last too long. But you're right. You know, and and, you know, William castle wanted to make that movie William castle was the producer, of course, in the fifties was famous for his gimmicks, you know, like emerge. Oh, and you know, all these the buzzers in the seats, and the, you know, all of these movie gimmicks of house.

"A little bit though as before with human beings but quite self scented, isn't that the same kind of thing though if we start thinking that why that always being created for us, it's definitely a bio century view. The word I'm looking for, but I don't necessarily think this view is incorrect. And the reason that to go in this direction is because of the experiences of people at work with show and to his credit Clemens Ave include his includes some of these. So he said, womanhood, readies. First book the by failure affect came out to him and said that fact that the two panes these incredible gases a at out knows level they, she said, fa me, this means that the trees want to be good to us. They want to help us and Ave said, look, when I talk with people about the healing powers of nature, I repeatedly he this point of view that processes in nature Nitra optimized joss for us. He said some herb lists also assume that plants contain certain ingredients for us that they form them to heal us. And he says the idea that plants come to us when we need them is now actually a widespread into rotation. All. Of ecological processes in nature. So he gives an example in two thousand thirteen. He visited wolf Dita stool, who is a doctor of Aetna, botany, cultural, anthropologist, any lives in the outs. The beautiful Austrian helps and he's written a bunch of books on plants and herbs and was really an expert. And he was doing a walk through the family Gaden with him, and they pasta area that was covered with Tisdale's the botanist than the gut stems prickly stems going up towards the sky, and they've got kind of dried up flower Costa's on the ends. Any said these tables, this is the the botanist. He said, these tables queued me of Lyme disease fees ago. That's a pretty outrageous claim because lime diseases insidious, will he went on to say since the plants queuing me, they thrive in my Gaden and he added that. The spirit of the plant has decided to stay with me offer. It had made me. Well, so this is kind of a shamanistic approach? Yeah. Okay. So when when you see botanists of the, you know, western butlers have these ideas. Of course, it immediately makes you think of the Amazon and shamans talking about the spirit of Iowa ska. Yes, the mother Iowa, the goddess in the plant, giving knowledge to the humans that consume her, and he adds another case. He wants to herbal teacher this trained expert on medicinal herbs who told him about the insights she had gained during her work at a clinic. And she said, it's really clear that in the surrounding meadows and forests around the clinic. She started to notice that herbs would always grow when though the most needed by the clinic. So if the clinic was running low. I don't know what's an example. What's what's an example of a healing her like cuts close something, right? Yeah. Low on cat score, and then they'll go out into the forest. It'd be like cats cl- everywhere. So it would somehow seemingly pick up upon the wants in the needs of the the human beings near. Now, this is a suggestion that you and I can make, but this is not a suggestion that Ave makes he very 'cause the Gaza biologist walk a fine line. He stops short of coming to conclusions from all of this. But for me, a lot of this is really telling its. It does suggest there's a kind of consciousness in nature kind of sentence kind of intelligence that we don't fully understand there is now a lot of my impressions of that came from the work of cleave backsta, but also again, the Japanese Santus that were doing the same thing with cacti little cacti that would scream every time he's.

"Cut healthcare spending actually making it easier to have a visit for something that's bothering you but might well have gone away on its own but now it's so convenient as long as you don't show up at lunch hour somebody will be there to see you so far they haven't been shown to have much of an ability if any to cut spending although the the shining vision of course is that eventually a greater access to care will make people healthier and so they won't need as much care but uh it is a or you know i think i think uh certainly a lot of commentators have said this seems kind of like a reach to locate the nucleus of coordination at at a drugstore minute clinic but to borrow a line from the old movies it so crazy it might just work and that's kind of my attitude toward it that uh uh at least i'd be interested in seeing this experiment tried because the existing efforts to provide coordinated care with hospitals are doc drew in coordination have kind of been done in terms of their effectiveness yeah yeah yeah it so it it sits interesting internal dynamic here we're from uh at this point of view they they wanna cut spending um but from cbs's point of view they want to increase it uh just with mark was saying get people in there as much as possible and charge for as many things so how did they vision balancing that is the idea that they can manage chronic conditions and then at and we'll be able to lower premiums and get better market share from employers spray uh i i haven't seen anything that describes where they think they're going in that regard but we were talking before we are they are market and that market share question is kind of a it portland because aetna has you know how many ever uh people on insurance roles from around the united states to begin with i don't think there's an expectation that this deal would significantly all of a sudden you'd have companies jumping on the aetna cvs bandwagon saying hey they've got this.

"Welcome back today we're talking about the merger between cbs and aetna and what it says about healthcare today and especially tech's role in health care one of the big questions being debated right now is our the merger and the larger trends behind it going to be good for patients that the hard question to answer but let's look at a few different things that could happen cbs and aetna have argued that together they can work to lower costs which would be better for patients aaron cats has been looking at mergers like this for a long time and he isn't so sure that will happen our experience to date with all kinds of mergers and consoldiation that's almost never the case one reason is that larger bolt up provider systems are better able to negotiate higher prices he so in fact it certainly it somewhat counter intuitive but that's the way it works in the in the healthcare system for and a customer as there may be other drawbacks people who have aetna insurance at this point in time depending on the market that they're in the locale that they're in they may be able to go to walgreens or bartels or cvs for their um prescriptions um you know i think a possibility would be that uh people who have aetna insurance may be restricted to cvs pharmacy so that kind of reduces the choice that patients have so those are at least two downsides of a merger like this is issues are still up in the air we know what's happened in the past but we can't say for sure what will happen in this time but there's another problem aaron seeds and this one is much better documented it's the idea of transactional healthcare instead of building a relationship with my doctor and seeing them again and again from a health care needs i met sometimes go into a local clinic or use a telemedicine service and get care from a doctor i have never met before who doesn't know anything about me or my health i mean i think the you'll sir transactional rule.
