Why a Silicon Valley Approach Can’t Work for Health Tech
Silicon Valley is good at "convenience tech", but there is probably another way that will make health tech work. Instead consider a bottom up design: design such that its useful and usable by the lowest. A different version of universal design.

Designing in the Void
The healthcare system isn't patient centered right now. It is probably the opposite of patient centered. There are three "voids" that are most evident right now.

Readiness Gap - Are we ready to implement and standardize new, advanced treatments? (Think about how vaccines turned out)
Insight Gap - We have a lot of data, but "There is too big a gap between the data-rich information available to institutions and the actionable, real-life information that pushes people to change their behaviors."

Medicare for All, Budget Reconciliation, and a “Get One Reform Free” Coupon
The CBO has scored an aggressive public option as savings money and done so consistently, on the order of $158 billion over ten years. It does this by lowering premiums overall, which means the ACA spends less on subsidies. But it also means more employers take advantage of it and pay people less through tax-free benefits, which increases the amount taxes collected
