Nikhil Krishnan aka “I got 99 problems and most of them are healthcare related”, and how technology can help us improve the US healthcare system
Good read: Have read a lot that sleep is #1 for recovery (Dr. Andrew Huberman) – have heard great things about that sleep company. Read/observed mixed reviews on Whoop but tech likely to improve exponentially over next decade. Could not agree more with last passage about preventative healthcare and government likely not having best interest in mind. I wonder what solution is to this problem – seems educating public on benefits of choosing healthy foods and exercise would be good place to start but not sure the vehicle to deliver that message? Seems like while short term of buying healthy groceries might increase food spending slightly - likely long term savings in less potential healthcare costs down the line.
Great read. Growing up, my family would take me to hospitals in South Korea instead of here in America. 1) it was cheaper 2) technology was more advanced 3) better doctors (higher bar to be a doctor there than here... top 1% of class only). So the technology is there, we just aren’t adopting it. Have you seen the software that nurses use here? Geospatial supply/demand for healthcare in America plays a role. That means the more money you have, the better quality care you’ll get. How can technology fix that?
