Ripe For

Why now?

History repeats itself:  It appears that there has been a consistent forward arc of U.S. healthcare policy (and operations) leading toward greater “patient-centered” healthcare financing and delivery design.


If you have ever been a patient, you know our health system is ripe for disruption. Along numerous avenues, U.S. Healthcare has significant opportunities to make progress in becoming more patient-centered, affordable, and higher quality.  One of those opportunities is the development of theoretical benefits to providers and their patients from a “patient-centered, sustainable healthcare system”.


This idea may require looking beyond the tradition of healthcare operators “maximizing profits” to enable “mission” (aka: no profit, no mission). Rather, we may now need to consider pivoting toward “optimization of system performance” using sustainability principles that take into consideration not only financial sustainability but include environmental and social sustainability in the strategic redesign and decision-making for legacy organizations, new consolidations and innovative start-ups.
