The US Medical Industry Turns Toward “Health Creation” … plus more

The US Medical Industry Turns Toward “Health Creation” … plus more

Ratings: (0)|Views: 20|Likes:
In April 2013, Douglas Wood, MD, the head of innovation for the Mayo Clinic, told an American Hospital Association (AHA) audience that their mission in this current era is “to change the focus of the health care industry to creating health, not just producing health care.”1 In December 2013, former Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services administrator Donald Berwick, MD, MPH, focused a 45-munute plenary session to an Institute for Health Improvement (IHI) audience of delivery-system executives on the same theme. After first noting positively how “commonplace” references in medical dialogue that describe the need to shift toward “health creation” have become, Dr Berwick identified present reform efforts such as accountable care organizations, interprofessionalism, and patient-centered medical homes. Then he added: “The pursuit of health—the creation of health—may require something even bolder. The redesign we need may be even more radical than we have imagined.”
At roughly the same moment, readers of the December 2013 issue of the flagship periodical of the AHA, Hospitals and Health Networks, were introduced to new chair-elect, Jonathan Perlin, MD, PhD. He urged delivery system leaders to learn how to “move from sick care to health care,” acknowledging that it will be a “tough transition.”2 Dr Perlin, the chief medical officer for the Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), echoed a theme that runs through Dr Berwick’s talk: “I am not sure that any of us fully understands or knows the recipe.”
