Blueprinting A New Healthcare System with Dave Chase

In Rockstars Rocking Podcast by Eric Silverman


This episode of the #RockstarsRocking podcast features Dave Chase, Co-Founder of Health Rosetta and multi-time best-selling author, out of the Greater Seattle area.

We open our interview with an in-depth discussion of how Health Rosetta was formed and how Dave came up with the idea after a trip to a British Museum. Dave also details how they found their purpose within the current debate of whether the health care system is actually “broken” or working exactly as it was originally intended.

Diving deeper into the state of the health care system, we discuss the parallels between architects retrofitting existing buildings vs. building “green” buildings from the ground up and how that mirrors the debate of whether we should keep tweaking our health care system for small gains, or if we should build a new system entirely.

The back half of our interview focuses on how employers get their employees into better health plans, both as a way to validate the ethos that “employees are our most valuable asset” and as a way to control their own ballooning budgets.

Dave also tells us how he got to consult on the TV Medical Drama “The Resident”, with some of the stories he told the writer’s room making it into season 3 of the show. We then wrap up with a discussion of how he measures success and a massive success story that changed not only the company, but the surrounding community.

So, are you ready for more? Go ahead and grab your warm beverage of choice and tap that play button, to tune in to this week’s edition of the #RockstarsRocking podcast.
