Overview
Trillions of dollars spent every year, billions wasted, and all of it at the expense of American families. This reality is the American healthcare economy. For you, an employee of the healthcare ecosystem, the current state of the healthcare economy poses an opportunity. This industry was created by humans, which means it can be fixed by humans too. Unlike a rare disease with an unknown pathology, healthcare has known variables and processes—and you hold the power to change it. Countless books describe the problems with American healthcare today. In Rich & Dying, Jeb explains the problems and provides a framework for real, comprehensive solutions. Throughout his decorated career, Jeb and his teams have saved the industry billions in avoidable expenditures. For Jeb, it still isn't enough. With numerous vantage points from across the industry, he's able to look beyond point-based solutions that provide episodic relief and instead propose a new way of thinking about the system. Join this important conversation, learn how to untangle the web of inefficiencies, and discover the role you play in making healthcare effective, affordable, and user-friendly for all Americans.
