Outgoing Clover Health CEO Vivek Garipalli told investors on a Nov. 7 call transcribed by Seeking Alpha there has yet to be a company to achieve large-scale disruption in the healthcare industry.
"Healthcare, education and energy production are three industries where positive disruptive impact at scale has not yet been proven out," Mr. Garipalli said. "Until that occurs, shareholders, current and future, should expect and embrace the skepticism that we face."
