This article is 6 months old, so maybe old news but new to me. Came across it because a CEO was just announced.

Surgeon, author and public health researcher Atul Gawande will lead the Boston-based partnership

Feels like a lot of the usual suspects are around this, but I haven't dug in yet (and I find a whole lot of nothing when I do sometimes).

This does scream problem-reaction-solution though. Healthcare skyrockets, public is worried, and here comes a group to possibly save the day. As of now, they are saying that this would be a company to provide healthcare to their employees, but they haven't ruled out going beyond that. Interesting.
