Health Catalyst recently showed a short healthcare documentary at their analytics conference. The documentary is called “From the Heart” and really does show some interesting work being done by a cardiologist in India and an organization in the Cayman Islands. The video is really well done and definitely provides some interesting perspectives on healthcare as we know it. You can watch the full video below.

Personally, I think it’s going to take some massive changes like some of the things they describe (ie. cheap, but high quality care) in order to change healthcare as we know it. I’m still chewing on the comment by the cardiologist about commoditizing healthcare. Many don’t even want to have that discussion. So, I’m really glad he’s raising it.
