About this Episode

According to economist Jim Rebitzer and healthcare consultant Bob Rebitzer, the healthcare industry has failed in achieving what many other sectors have accomplished – improving products, while simultaneously reducing costs over time.

In this episode, recorded live at The Players 2024 Championship, host Rachel (Rae) Woods invited Jim and Bob to discuss the central premise of their book, Why Not Better and Cheaper? They discussed the root causes of this challenge – including incentives, prevailing professional and social norms, and competition – that the industry must confront to deliver better and cheaper healthcare.
