Why Do You Think Sharecare Is Important?

I think going forward helping people to have access to proper medical information is one of the ways that we are going to reform the medical system to deliver better quality care without burdening the system unduly. So much of what's important in health care is proper patient education, but it's hard to achieve that in the limited time that most practitioners have in the office setting, and so making that information available to people by some other means is critical.

But it's critically important to had it done by an organization like Sharecare because you don't want people, providing information with let's say personal agenda or putting out information that is broadly at odds with well trained practitioners think. So basically in simple terms it's a way of getting reliable information out to people so that they can use it to improve their health care.
