Here is the second post in my Elsewhere series of sharing compelling content from other sites and contributors. This video comes from the Health 2.0 blog, the eponymous site for the Health 2.0 conference. Jeff Goldsmith delivered the keynote in October 2010. I've had the privilege of seeing Jeff speak, most recently in late October at a different event. He is engaging, funny and most importantly data-driven. In this 20 minute clip, Jeff delivers some staggering statistics about the healthcare industry as well as some predictions for the future.
