Tenet 6.7: Health 3.0 promotes the antifragile – skin in the game of health care

Tenet 6.7: Health 3.0 promotes the antifragile – skin in the game of health care. I’m naked and exposed now.  And that’s the way I want it to be.

Tenet 6.5: Health 3.0 promotes the antifragile – hormesis in health care. There is nothing more Finnish than a sauna. There is nothing less Finnish than me. But I’ve become fascinated with the sauna.  I haven’t been in one yet.  But it’s calling to me. Explain sauna to a guy living

Tenet 6.4: Health 3.0 promotes the antifragile – the via negativa approach

Tenet 6.4: Health 3.0 promotes the antifragile – the via negativa approach. I often feel like we’re making health care reform way too complicated.  We can become more antifragile in health AND cut health care costs tremendously by practicing what Nassim Taleb in Antifragile calls via negativa, or the negative road.  Via negativa means that we

Tenet 6.3: Health 3.0 promotes the antifragile – health care IS NOT complex, like you think it is. The picture above is the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  Depending on who’s counting, it’s 10,000 to 20,000 pages of regulations long. Do you think this leads to better health care? As Nassim Taleb

Tenet 6.2: Health 3.0 promotes the antifragile — options trading in health care. I dropped a hundred dollars into some tech stock the first time I started trading options on a friend’s advice in the late 90s. In a month I made a thousand dollars. That was a lot of money for a

Tenet 6.1: Health 3.0 promotes the antifragile — the problem of too big to fail

Tenet 6.1: Health 3.0 promotes the antifragile — the problem of too big to fail. I volunteer some time teaching gastroenterology trainees at my alma mater. The senior ones seeking a job will ask me what group I’m with. I tell them the group of me, myself, and I. They have a look of

Tenet 1: Health 3.0 embraces uniqueness

Tenet 1: Health 3.0 embraces uniqueness. Uniqueness, not separateness. Separate and unique aren’t the same thing. By separate I mean independent but disconnected. Unique means independent AND connected. Health 1.0 is the practice of medicine that’s independent and separated from a unified health care system. Health 2.0 looks to bring all the
