Imagine moving from Sick Care to an ideal Healthcare System. The US healthcare system desperately needs radical reform to rein in costs, reduce harm, expand access and become customer-centric. Imagine a healthcare system where consumers are respected and in control. Imagine communities focused on prevention and health. Imagine a system where drugs and surgeries are more affordable and effective. Real change requires disruptive innovation. As citizens, employers, entrepreneurs, healthcare workers, elected officials, and patients, it is time for us to drive the change.
In their new book, Healthcare is Killing US: The Power of Disruptive Innovation to Create a System that Cares More and Costs Less, authors Aaron Fausz and Terry Howell explain how we can disrupt, dismantle and rebuild. They ask the question, “Will you be among the daring disruptors creating the ideal healthcare system of tomorrow?” And they put forward a cogent pathway from a sick care system that is killing us physically, financially and spiritually into a compassionate, affordable and risk-free place for everyone to live longer, healthier lives. Don’t just imagine. It is time to do something.
