Cost to Zero

Cost to Zero

Together we can reduce the cost of care to “zero.”

About 800 million people spend at least 10% of their household budgets on medical expenses, according to a 2017 report by the World Bank and WHO. That’s expensive enough to send 100 million people into extreme poverty. Mobile technology internet connectivity are flipping the cost of care paradigm. Telemedicine has dramatically lowered provider overhead. New population health startups are upgrading the way patients battle chronic illnesses, slashing costs. We’re on a moonshot mission to take costs from poverty- inducing all the way to zero. The only way that is going to be possible is for us to dismantle our understanding of health and rebuild the machine from the ground-up.
