The interview with our featured guest, Dr. Kyu Rhee, was conducted in April ’21. Data referenced during this conversation will have changed since the recording.


So, we know that inequality exists. But, do we think the government can fix it? Or can private enterprise step in to lend data, insights and financial muscle toward the problem? This week’s episode of Contakt World dives into the hot button issues of data collection, medical trends, big business, and minority populations, as well as the politics of public health – all viewed through the lens of Kyu Rhee, Senior Vice President of CVS Health, and Chief Medical Officer for Aetna, which are two of the biggest medical forces in the United States. Join our hosts Justin Beck, Catherine Delcin and Deepti Pahwa, as they speak with Rhee, and discuss the challenges faced by doctors, data collectors, private enterprises and public officials as they work together toward a better future. As always, we’ll talk about how to help our local health departments – and encourage innovation and technology integration – all while remaining empathetic, plus keeping an eye toward health equity for all.
