"Hot Spotting" with Dr. Jeffrey Brenner (Extended interview)

This week we told you about "hot spotting": using data to find out who is using the health care system the most, and then targeting care to those spots to help people get healthy, and bring costs to the system down. We looked at a Canadian hot spot in Saskatoon, but we also talked to the U.S. doctor who coined the phrase and who first mined the data. Dr. Jeffrey Brenner spoke to Brian about how he found the hotspots and the kind of disruptive change it takes to cool them down. Click here for our full interview with Dr. Jeffrey Brenner.
