The Pragmatic Visionary: Dave Chase, CEO

Dave Chase leads the vision for Health Rosetta which is to empower community-owned health plans. Health Rosetta’s blueprint and platform powers the health plans of your dreams: high quality, trustworthy, local, affordable care — that you thought had disappeared forever — from caregivers we know & trust. We free up compassionate, well-trained, community-based caregivers to rediscover love in medicine so they can do what they have always been called to do: serve their patients not just in disease, but toward their fullest health. A trusted & sacred caregiver-patient bond is built through transparency & openness that equips and empowers patients wherever they can best achieve their unique health goals — at home or any setting best optimizing their well-being. By avoiding the 50% wasted healthcare spending, we can ensure our caregivers have the independence & resources to address the psychosocial and medical issues their patients face. Human-centered health plans restore health, hope & well-being.
