KMRD is Restoring the American Dream One Employer at Time
Exclusive Access for KMRD Clients and Selected Partners
Great read on how to fight the opioid crisis while also reducing overall health care cost with better outcomes.
In Opioid Crisis Wake-up Call, Dave takes a totally different approach to the opioid crisis than I've seen any local or national thought leaders take. The double win about Dave's ideas is that not only can they help people avoid exposure to opioids, but they are generally in line with "fixes" to the health care system that provide better outcomes and are less expensive.

What people are saying
The Opioid Crisis Wake-Up Call
This is a must-read for any business leader tasked with providing high-quality healthcare to employees. Chase delivers a compelling account of what we've been doing wrong with benefits purchasing, and how we the people, not Washington elites, can solve the opioid crisis.
Dave Chase diagnoses the dangerous and expensive shortcomings of our health care system and inspires us to create a more transparent and accountable one. Using the evolution of the opioid crisis to demonstrate how US healthcare has failed on multiple fronts, Dave illustrates the cornerstones of reform: value-based payment, accessible, comprehensive primary care, employer/provider/community partnerships, and available, relevant data. The Opioid Crisis Wake-up Call should be required reading for anyone working to engineer a better US health care system.
A fresh perspective from one the one of the most brilliant minds in health care. Chase is not beholden to any of the [industry's] giant stakeholders. The result is a uniquely honest and novel conversation about what’s best for America.
CEO's Guide to Restoring
The American Dream
The book is packed with wisdom you can’t find elsewhere but also a nice, light style that makes it addictive. There is so much in this book that is hidden behind the many layers of obfuscation characterizing our healthcare system. As a group trying to create and then disseminate new models of care that improve outcomes and lower costs, we are continuously running into hidden barriers with insurers and also un-empowered healthcare purchasers. This book has the practical prescription for moving it all forward. I’m making it required reading at Dell Med and recommending it for our many partners.
One of the top ten healthcare books of all time, and #1 for delivering practical advice.
Dave, you nailed it! Your message is vital for business leaders as it exposes the many dirty secrets behind the business of Employee Benefit plans. Yes, it is time to shed dependence on those who have benefited most from lousy results and demand vastly improved outcomes for employers and their employees. This is a must read to turn the tables on the benefits industry.
