Health Literacy and the Consumerization of Healthcare
In this episode of Highway to Health, host David Kemp sits down with Chase Feiger, M.D., CEO of Ostro, to check in on health literacy and the consumerization of healthcare. Feiger emphasizes the importance of making healthcare experiences as seamless and intuitive as using everyday apps like Uber or Instagram. He highlights that true health literacy means providing easily understandable content, regardless of background or education. This approach empowers patients and alleviates the burden on already strained healthcare providers. This timely discussion underscores the need for a shift in the healthcare paradigm, where both patients and providers benefit from clear, concise, and accessible information.
