Changing healthcare must be a highly complicated process or else it would have likely been changed by now. Right?
Maybe we should do ourselves a favor and consider that the current system is broken, and it may be time to plan ahead for something better. Do we plan on help coming for healthcare?Well there is hope.
Consider the new Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation and their charge to “test innovative payment and service delivery models to reduce program expenditures, while preserving or enhancing the quality of care”.
Consider the exciting Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative unfolding across the country.
Consider that innovation around healthcare continues to rise up out of practices who want to do more for their patients.
Healthcare leaders must begin to plan ahead for the system we want, not the system that we have.
