Atul Gawande, the surgeon and journalist who has written extensively about America's failure to grapple with an inefficient health-care system, has been named to head a new venture for Amazon.com (AMZN), Berkshire Hathaway (BRKB) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM).

The new venture — meant to help the companies get their health-care costs down — will be based in Boston. Gawande will start on July 9. It will be independent from the three firms, whose leaders formed the group as a way of grappling with what Berkshire CEO Warren Buffett called a "tapeworm" eating the American economy.
