On this week’s episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Dave Chase joins me to discuss challenges and opportunities of the current state of healthcare in the United States. Chase was named one of the most influential people in Digital Health due to his entrepreneurial success, public speaking & writing that recognizes healthcare's under-performance but contrasts that with a growing cadre of high-performing organizations that have solved healthcare's toughest challenges. Chase, widely published, co-authored the healthcare Book of the Year in 2014.
In this episode, we discuss:
-What is Health 3.0 and why human relationships take the forefront of this framework
-How to target the quadruple aim of a better patient experience, better outcomes, lower costs and happier clinicians
-Health Rosetta: The blueprint for wise healthcare purchasing
-Physical therapy’s important role in the emergent changes of Health 3.0
-And so much more!
One of the many challenges facing our healthcare system is the inability of the current system to embody patient centered care. Dave stresses, “We have seeded authority to government, administrators, and algorithms and treating a computer screen rather than the patient… We are all sort of treated as commodities and raw materials for this machine.”
Public outreach is necessary to educate patients on all potential healthcare options. Dave believes physical therapists are aligned ideally with Health Rosetta because, “People will almost always choose the least invasive option first.”
Improving the healthcare system begins with restoring the incentives for patient centered care. Dave states, “Almost everything in our system is designed around the convenience of the healthcare system not the convenience of the patient.”
