While the Google --> WebMD --> Friend protocol may be a common way to enter into the healthcare system, it is certainly not an optimal one. Most of us are not well-equipped to self-diagnose from a list of possible conditions, and our friends who work in healthcare often don’t have the exact expertise we need.
Building specialist AIs to perform healthcare tasks offers the most challenging technical problems in the field today, as well as the greatest opportunity for impact.
We believe that any new technology has to be 10 times better to successfully displace the last one – marginal improvements aren’t worth the effort. Enterprise software struggled to clear that 10x bar in healthcare; AI clears it easily.
The most impactful companies are built at the frontier, and healthcare is the next frontier. It’s time to put our tech skills to work. The mother of all markets is ripe for disruption.
