The new company will be headquartered in Boston and will operate as an independent entity that is free from profit-making incentives and constraints.
Amazon, JPMorgan and Berkshire Hathawayannounced in February that they were teaming up to form a health care company that aims to increase transparency and cut costs for their employees.
KPMG principal Ash Shehata, who is focused on healthcare, said Gawande's expertise would enable him to take a high-level view of how payers, providers and government agencies could do a better job to improve care and reduce costs.
The decision was applauded by the high-profile CEOs backing the venture, JP Morgan's leader Jamie Dimon, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezo's and Berkshire Hathaway's Warren Buffet.
The surgeon and New Yorker writer was named CEO of the yet-to-be named company that aims to fix problems in health care for U.S. workers.
Japan and Senegal fans clean stadiums after World Cup matches
After Japan and Senegal won their respective 2018 World Cup matches Tuesday, their fans stayed behind to clean up the stadiums. Russia's victory was predicted by the "psychic" cat Achilles, who also predicted Russia's win in the World Cup opening game.
The choice of Gawande reflects the company's plans to focus on the entire healthcare system, rather than just looking to curb prescription drug costs, as some investors had first thought, analysts said on Wednesday. The three business leaders have said Americans could make more use of technology to improve care and Dimon, in a letter to shareholders in April mentioned telemedicine, wellness programs and end-of-life care. "Atul embodies all three, and we're starting strong as we move forward in this challenging and worthwhile endeavor". Amazon, Berkshire and JPMorgan collectively employ more than 1 million people.
Mr Gawande has written four New York Times bestsellers: Complications, Better, The Checklist Manifesto, and Being Mortal and has received numerous awards for his contributions to science and health care.
One of the big influences the prominent US corporate giants could have in the health care market is pricing leverage. "And, you know, if you had some really smart people running it that knew a lot about medicine, they're going to-they could do a lot about it", Buffett said in the appearance. He practices general and endocrine surgery at the renowned Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and is a researcher and professor at Harvard's T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Many patients, especially the sickest, struggle with that. Companies are asking them to pay more of their care bills and to shop around for better deals.
Amazon, Berkshire and JPMorgan announced the joint venture in January, saying US healthcare costs were rising too fast and holding back economic growth.
