Notable quotes from Dr. Shah’s interview:

Embracing uncertainty and feeling comfortable in the unknown… that’s been a good spot to be in.
75% of US health care dollars are spent on the end effects of some chronic disease. 3% are spent on preventive management. The system is solving for exactly what it’s designed to solve for: disease-related care.
The process of innovation in health care is exceedingly difficult… go find the coalition of the willing and build it. The others will follow once they see how valuable it is.
Realize that compensation comes in many other forms other than money. Work for yourself and find value in what you do.
