I've lived my life in healthcare. I grew up in a medical household, and later got an M.D. Now, in mid-life, I am saddened and dismayed. America is the wealthiest country in the world, yet we often bankrupt our citizens when they become ill. We cure what seems incurable, but then abandon the many others. Care is often replaced by technology.
I believe every generation of humanity solves its problem through a new paradigm. The last paradigm was about the computer and optimizing the individual. We are now entering a new era, one where problems are solved via the community.
My intent with this blog is to offer a perspective on the broken process we all face when we're sick. If you agree, tell me. If you disagree, I want to know. To cut the Gordian Knot of Healthcare will require collaboration and a team based approach to care along with innovative ideas from every quarter.
