The Successful Thinker The Future Of Healthcare - Page 11

PUTTING THE 'CARE' BACK INTO HEALTH CARE The issue becomes one of sustainability. Patients want to live longer, healthier lives, and providers want to have fulfilling, happier careers that don't destroy THEIR own health. Thus far, the equation isn't panning out as planned. We are burning out our medical professionals at an alarming rate with anxiety, depression, and even suicide levels rising sharply. Frustration and fatigue levels are at an all time high. Patients are frustrated with prohibitive costs, elevated insurance deductibles, and restricted access. Everyone has a right, they believe, to the best care available. However, there ARE solutions, but they require changing our paradigms to one of growth, inclusion, and sustainability.
