what if we paid doctors to keep us healthy?
”Societies must find a way to separate day-to-day medical decisions from financial incentives. When we incentivize doctors to make people ill, it is a matter of time before the whole population will be declared ill one way or the other.”
Dr Kamal Kumar Mahawar
Li Shizhen, a proponent of Neo-Confucianism, believed ‘that cur[ing] disease[s] is like waiting until one is thirsty before digging a well’.
During this time Li Shizhen explains, that ‘the doctor would be paid as long as the patient was healthy.’
Dr. Ashwin Naik
IT STARTS WITH A DROP
I was working as a sales representative at omron healthcare in germany in 2013 onwards. this means, I was selling blood pressure monitors and nebulizers to pharmacies within my region. doing so, I became very successful, and was able to secure many bonuses for my efforts. it was sudden, when I realized that the more money I made, it meant, that more people were ill or not feeling well.
this made me feel very uncomfortable.
why was I being rewarded for people being ill?
this was the birth of rypple. I gathered 10+ experience of working in the healthcare industry and had decided that 2023 was the year for me to fully commit to the mission to change the way stakeholders are incentivized in the industry.
