This may come as a surprise, but the U.S. health care system is incredibly flawed. But what if we were able to improve patient access, reduce costs, and shorten patient waiting times? Joining Joe this week are two men who have done that: Mohan Giridharadas and Sanjeev Agrawal, senior executives at LeanTaaS, a company that believes that advanced data science can solve tough operational problems in healthcare.
