Dave Chase has an industry-unique ability to identify the challenges facing our health care system in a manner that the ever-expanding and frustrated masses can quickly understand. What truly distinguishes Dave s effort is not the failures he identifies, but the thought-provoking and tested solutions he presents coupled with his willingness to challenge payers, providers and consumers alike to demand a more-rewarding health care system. --Tommy Thompson - Former Governor of Wisconsin and HHS Secretary
The book is packed with wisdom you can t find elsewhere but also a nice, light style that makes it addictive. There is so much in this book that is hidden behind the many layers of obfuscation characterizing our healthcare system. As a group trying to create and then disseminate new models of care that improve outcomes and lower costs, we are continuously running into hidden barriers with insurers and also un-empowered healthcare purchasers. This book has the practical prescription for moving it all forward. I'm making it required reading at Dell Med and recommending it for our many partners. --S. Claiborne "Clay" Johnston - Dean, Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin.
More and more C-suite executives see health benefits a major liability, not an asset. The CEO s Guide to Restoring the American Dream is a life saving guide to provide employees needed healthcare in way a your CFO and CEO will applaud. --Tom Emerick - Former head of benefits at Walmart, BP, & Burger King
About the Author
Dave Chase conceived of the Health Rosetta after being the CEO/Co-founder of Avado, a digital health company acquired by & integrated into WebMD & Medscape (the most widely used healthcare professional site). The Health Rosetta is the blueprint for purchasing healthcare wisely, sourced from real life experience implementing practical, non-partisan solutions.
His work applies the Health Rosetta in two areas. First, Chase is a cofounder of the Health Rosetta Institute (HRI), which creates LEED-like certifications for purchasing healthcare. HRI's primary current focus is the U.S. employer healthcare market, but the Health Rosetta isn't inherently employer or U.S. specific.
Second, Chase is a cofounder of the Health Rosetta Group, a holding company and investment group that drives healthcare's transformation. It uses innovative approaches to build and fund the next generation of healthcare tech and services companies.
Chase's TEDx talk, Healthcare Stole the American Dream - Here s How We Take it Back sums up healthcare's devastation on the middle class and the redemption coming via a grassroots movement. It can be viewed at healthrosetta.org/tedx. Chase was named one of the most influential people in Digital Health because of his entrepreneurial success, speaking, and writing. He delights in sharing how high-performing organizations have solved healthcare's toughest challenges. Chase co-authored the healthcare Book of the Year in in 2014 awarded by HIMSS entitled Engage! Transforming Healthcare Through Digital Patient Engagement.
Before Avado, Chase spent several years outside of healthcare in startups as a founder or in consulting roles with LiveRez.com, MarketLeader, and WhatCounts. He was also on the founding & leadership teams in two $1B+ businesses within Microsoft including their $2 billion healthcare platform business.
Chase is a father of two great kids/athletes, husband, and oxygen-fueled mountain athlete. His team placed 3rd in their division and 24th overall (of 500 teams) in the oldest adventure race in the U.S. where Dave tackled the Nordic ski leg. Dave is also a former PAC-12 800 Meter competitor.

As a researcher in the health insurance and digital health fields myself, I've often written about how employers have been letting their employees down when it comes to controlling for quality and costs. I'm thrilled to see that Dave penned this book because now I can just point friends, colleagues, and family to this terrific source of valuable information.
I've often written that money that goes into healthcare industry participants originates from only a few places: (a) the individual, us or (b) the government through us as taxpayer or (c) charitable sources through us as donors or (d) employers through us as employees. When you look at the sources of healthcare funding, it ultimately always comes through us as individuals in terms of directly out of our pockets or indirectly through money we donate, pay in taxes, or earn from employers. There's very little power we have as individuals to do anything about the industry as a whole and hoping that government will do something is folly for the time being. Charitable organizations cannot do much either.
But, employers potentially wield a great deal of power that they're squandering.
It is the employers that Dave focuses on in his book and I'd love to see Dave's work lead to more actionable advice, perhaps some open source or similar projects led by think tanks / thought leaders, that would help employers understand why they have far more control than they're wielding at the moment.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to those wondering why healthcare costs are rising while quality and productivity remains static or declining; more importantly, I strongly suggest that anyone in charge of healthcare benefits for their employees read this book and begin implementing its recommendations.
Upside - Wholeheartedly agree with the importance of cost and his deconstruction is compelling & mostly on point. Many brokers, insurers, and hospitals do not even have a measure of value...
Downside - The chapters in the book read like floats in a parade... Glad to hear there's a new version
Me? As a business owner I'd say health benefit price alone is not the same as value actually.
I think the author is bright & insightful, but disruption as a mantra is too cynical for me. My sense is the industry needs vision, a constructive roadmap, & leadership for the future of our health system.
