Yes, thatâ€™s patient-centric â€“ the counterpoint to cost-based â€“ health care.
The day was kicked off by Ralph Snyderman, Chancellor Emeritus, Duke University and Chair of the Patient Centric Leadership Forum. Dr. Snyderman made the dayâ€™s opening presentation forever memorable by making a crucial point...
... since we are all embracing the concept of a â€œsustainable planet,â€ we should understand that such a notion must begin with the essential consideration of a â€œsustainable individual.â€
And that means a focus on â€œProspective Healthâ€ with five key components:
* Health risk assessment tools
* Therapeutic evaluation tools
* Aligned health care providers
* Aligned reimbursement systems
* Motivated consumers
Difficult to be sure. But as the great health care philosopher Kermit the Frog opined, â€œIt isnâ€™t easy being green.â€
Full transcripts of the meeting will be available shortly.
