Dr. Atul Gawande, a prominent surgeon, teacher, entrepreneur,  public figure, and staff writer for The New Yorker, has been nominated CEO of an Amazon, JPMorgan Chase, and Berkshire Hathaway funded venture to fix America’s ailing healthcare system.  Widely known for his 2009 New Yorker piece The Cost Conundrum, Dr. Gawande openly criticized the US healthcare system and its inherent inequality.  More important, however, are the solutions he proposed in that article and others he’s written since.  It was those novel criticisms and subsequent proposed solutions which garnered him attention from the likes of Jeff Bezos, Jamie Dimon, and Warren Buffett and, eventually, the nomination to head their as-yet-unnamed venture.
