The CEO of Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan Chase joint venture will speak at HIMSS19 in February. Gawande will discuss his bold vision for a better world, during the keynote, according to HIMSS.Gawande leads the closely-watched healthcare venture that was launched in January as a nonprofit to provide high-quality and transparent care at a reasonable cost by Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JP Morgan Chase. The three corporate behemoths have the financial, analytical and technological clout to change how healthcare is delivered, at the very least, for their one million-plus combined employees.CEOs Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett and Jamie Dimon have said little about what they want for the new company, other than it will be an independent entity, free from profit-making incentives and restraints, and based in Boston.Gawande founded Ariadne Labs to deliver better care by improving the performance of health systems through design, system engineering and implementation science. Ariadne Labs is a joint center for innovation at Brigham and Womens Hospital and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.He has been a staff writer for The New Yorker since 1998 and has written four best-sellers around the practice of medicine.Gawande has thus far revealed little about plans for the new healthcare company. By statement he has discussed building scalable solutions for better healthcare delivery, eliminating wasteful spending, reducing suffering, and having the backing of the three organizations to create an impact for their employees and to incubate better models of care for all.
