47: Transparency and Delivery in Healthcare Today w/ Jeff Toewe
On today's episode of Healthcare Simplified, Jeff Toewe, CEO of Medxoom, joins us to talk about healthcare transparency and the state of healthcare delivery today.
Healthcare may be the only service in the economy where you don't know the price until after delivery. Often, providers don't know the cost because they don't know your plan. And you don't know if your cost is reasonable. That's a transparency problem. And it's where Medxoom comes in. They help members discover and have intelligent conversations about what a service should cost before it's delivered.

In fact, there's 10 different kinds of sugars sprinkled in. That's just one example of how what we think we know about health may not be accurate.
