This week on active information, I excerpt and comment on a Kauffman Foundation report on healthcare that I found both enlightening and enraging.
“Why is it we can predict a consumer’s propensity to read Hunger Games, upgrade their iPad or download music featured on the Voice, yet we fail miserably at predicting life-threatening events, such as a women’s propensity to develop breast cancer?”
Thanks to Joe McKendrick for pointing out the report.
