Jason Hwang, M.D., M.B.A. is an internal medicine physician who is co-founder and chief medical officer of Icebreaker Health (Lemonaid Health), a California-based health care startup that is transforming primary care by delivering services via smartphone app. As a speaker, he blends his medical experience, business education, and technological advances, showcasing the exciting range of innovation occurring in the health care industry today along with a sneak peak of what will be possible tomorrow.
Dr. Hwang previously co-founded and was the Executive Director of Healthcare at Innosight Institute (now renamed the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation), a non-profit social innovation think tank that is driving the reinvention of the health care industry, making it more accessible and user-friendly. Dr. Hwang coauthored The Innovator’s Prescription: A Disruptive Solution for Healthcare with Professor Clayton M. Christensen of Harvard Business School and the late Jerome H. Grossman of Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
The Innovator′s Prescription: A Disruptive Solution for Health Care
Previously, Dr. Hwang taught as chief resident and clinical instructor at the University of California, Irvine, where he received multiple recognitions for his clinical work. He has also served as a clinician with the Southern California Kaiser Permanente Medical Group and the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Long Beach, California.
Jason received his doctorate from the University of Michigan, residency training at the University of California, Irvine, and his masters of business administration from Harvard Business School.
Dr. Jason Hwang discusses how we can attain affordable healthcare for everyone by applying disruptive innovation to the medical sector. For sometime now cycles of disruptive innovation have been rampant in the business world; today we see this in the form of small start-ups creating a product that enables people to do something for themselves instead of paying an “expert” to do it for them. This innovation renders larger companies who were once experts in providing that service, obsolete.
In the case of medicine, Dr. Hwang explores why disruptive technologies have been slow to reinvent healthcare and what can be done to remedy the problem. Surveying the various reasons often cited as the cause of healthcare’s woes (costly technology, insurance agencies, lawyers), he admits, “None of these reasons never really seemed right to me…There had to be something deeper and more systemic going on, and it just felt like we were misdiagnosing what was happening.”
Dr. Jason Hwang shares how frustration in his clinical work drove him to study innovation and become one of the biggest shakers in the healthcare industry. Tired of only having a few minutes to “patch up his patients,” he was convinced that there must be a better way to deliver healthcare and give patients the attention that they truly need and deserve.
Using the lessons he’s learned from Harvard Business School legend Clayton Christensen, Dr. Hwang examines how health professionals and patients can take some tips from other industries and generate disruptive innovation to “democratize health care.”
Dr. Jason Hwang shares his groundbreaking research into disruptive innovation, which has transformed many industries and can do the same for health care. He describes how new medical technologies have fueled the transition from intuitive to precision medicine, allowing previously complex disorders to be diagnosed precisely and treated with predictably effective therapies.
When these innovations are integrated into new business systems, they will spearhead vital reforms in the healthcare industry, offering solutions to the core problems currently crippling the nation′s healthcare system: skyrocketing costs and the lack of access to quality medical care.
