SONG: It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Value

To the tune of “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” by Meredith Wilson

It’s beginning to look a lot like Value
Everywhere you go
Telehealth beyond compare, consumers are more aware
That timely visits assure a healthy glow.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Value
Standard prices on CAT scans
And the savviest sight to see is the data that will be
In our own care plans

A clinic that is near and serves with great cheer
Is the wish of Barney and Ben
Apps that’ll talk like a friendly old doc
Is the hope of Janice and Jen
And Mom and Dad have just enrolled in their MA plan again.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Value
Everywhere you go
There’s a gym in the Grand Hotel, tae-kwan-do in the park as well
Keeps both mind and body in flow

It’s beginning to look a lot like Value
Consumers in control
And the services that they choose send sellers powerful clues
How to care with soul.

A clinic that is near and serves with great cheer
Is the wish of Barney and Ben
Apps that’ll talk like a friendly old doc
Is the hope of Janice and Jen
And Mom and Dad have just enrolled in their MA plan again.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Value
Clear prices are the rule
And the savviest sights to see are the outcomes that will be
Smart and kinder too.

Sure, that’s Value that’s true!

John Zam

John is our favorite piano man, a consummate entertainer with a fabulous voice and incredible piano skills. He’s a lifelong Billy Joel enthusiast, and well-versed in the beloved piano bar repertoire from the 70s and 80s, with virtuosity in all genres: classic rock, the Beatles, Broadway, standards from the great crooners, country, and today’s hits. John entertained Chicago audiences for more than 20 years at the famed Redhead Piano Bar, other intimate entertainment spaces, luxury hotels and restaurants, and is based in Florida now. His shows are personal, he loves requests, and can make anyone feel special with a favorite song.

At 4sight Health, music is one of our cultural touchstones, an entrée into serious, even wonky concepts. As our troubadour, John brings to life David Johnson’s alternate lyrics to well-known songs. We don’t take ourselves too seriously! Listen to them all here.

John studied music at Northwestern University, and pivoted his communication degree and PR work to performance. Original artists from Billy Joel to Metallica have complimented him on his live covers of their songs and he’s been covered in the WSJ, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times. After decades of Chicago winters, he headed south to Miami, writes original music and performs in southern Florida, with occasional appearances at his Chicago haunts.
