Several years ago, Vince Albanese, CEO/Founder of Haven Health Solutions, was diagnosed with cancer.
“The view from the bed is a lot different than the view from outside the bed,” Albanese told Ed Kim, host of the Traders Network Show, at the 2019 Converge2Xcelerate Conference in Boston. “Uncertainty is just rife through that. And when it’s your life or a loved one’s life, you want to know what’s going on.”
Albanese said his firsthand experience with uncertainty in the healthcare system inspired him to work toward a solution.
“The manifestation of uncertainty is having a test, and then not getting a response back. What does that prompt? It prompts a phone call to an office where there is no one to answer a phone to a return call where there is not someone prepared to answer it,” Albanese said. In this healthcare version of Chaos Theory, “The butterfly flapping its wings causes costs to ripple through the entire system. That manifests everywhere. It’s the doctor, it’s the insurance company, it’s government. We want to eliminate and reduce that,” he continued.
Albanese says the solution should be left up to the private sector.
“It is going to take industry to solve this because it requires cooperation. Government’s primary role is to mandate at a high level what should happen. But then you’ve got to stimulate the industry to solve the problem on their own. Otherwise it becomes too much of a carrot or stick, which is negative and takes way too long,” Albanese said.
