Health 2.0

More Disruption from Jonathan Bush…This Time It’s Primary Care | Jonathan Bush, Firefly Health

By JESSICA DaMASSA, WTF HEALTH

Health tech rabble-rouser, Jonathan Bush, marked his return to digital health with an appearance on the Health 2.0 stage, and quick chat with WTF Health about his new role as Executive Chairman at Firefly Health. As if conquering EMRs wasn’t enough, JB’s planning on disrupting primary care for his second act. With $10.8M series A funding and a huge addressable market, this may not be such a crazy idea after all. So, what made us miss this guy so much during his year-long hiatus from health tech? Just watch. This interview goes from the “Kabuki theater of the doctor’s office visit” to “Marie Kondo-ing” healthcare to Machiavelli and universal healthcare’s impact on the health tech market. Welcome back, JB.

Filmed at the Health 2.0 Conference in Santa Clara, CA in September 2019.

Wow, $50 per month to talk (maybe) to a strange, always different NP – can’t wait. “Patient, please pock yourself mid abdomen and tell me what you feel.” What practitioner wouldn’t want $50 per month to not see people. Can’t wait for a certified “Watson” NP which will do it all on my phone app.

And those socialist hoard Swedes who do it, with face to face, for about 60% of our venture capitalist system which is still trying to find how to keep the profits up while giving the consumer less – but advertising more.
