Today’s edition of THCB reader includes: Hans Duvefelt arguing that emergency rooms visits can be avoided if primary care physicians are given more time with patients; Mike Magee stressing the need for Universal health care for all Americans; and Shahid Shah & Brian Van Winkle giving startups some useful tips to truly disrupt the health care ecosystem. On video, THCB Spotlights Matt Cox, who told me about Lumeris’s growth in the Medicare Advantage space, while Jess DaMassa talks to Joe Curcio, CEO of Kinaptic, the winner of Bayer’s 2018 G4A Accelerator program. BTW if you want to get into the 2019 Bayer G4A program, the deadline is tomorrow, while the deadline for the 2 RWJF challenges (SDOH & HCBC) from Catalyst @ Health 2.0 is next Friday  — Matthew Holt

Guess how many emergency room or urgent care center visits could be avoided and handled in the primary care office if we were able to provide only the services patients thought they needed? Primary care physicians can’t afford to have quick visits since anything less than comprehensive makes us look bad.

In health delivery, we have moved away from paternalism toward partnership and from individual care models to team approaches. But despite this shifting environment, there is a growing political disconnect between those in control of our federal government and the people they are governing. Universal health care is a right for all Americans and is key for the future ability of our citizens to flourish in a changing world.

May 23, Shahid Shah and Brian Van Winkle
Start-ups are an increasingly important node within the health care ecosystem, challenging status quo concepts that have long been ingrained in the health care system. They may be the future of the industry, but startups have a long way to go to truly transform the system. It’s not easy getting innovative products into health systems, so this article provides some useful tips to get you well along your way.
Bayer’s G4A program offers 50-100K in Euros to both early stage “Growth” and more mature startups “Advance”. But get a move-on, as applications close on May 31, which is TOMORROW! Visit https://www.g4a.health/ to find out more
