Health Care - Competition in the health care industry
The US system has more competition than any other health care system in the world and so the paradox for me and for Mike as we study strategy and innovation is why is it the competition in health care doesn't work like it does in other sectors . In other sectors you see... you see competition and innovation driving phenomenal improvements in quality and efficiency simultaneously. And yet we see in health care high-costs , variable quality, high numbers of errors, many... Millions of uninsured. How? Why is this, why is this happening this way and how can you change it? What we um... What we've come to understand is that competition occurs on the wrong things and at the wrong levels. You need competition to occur where value is created for patients and so competition needs to occur at the level of uh... of patients medical conditions 'cause that's where value is created for patients and that's how care needs to be organized and delivered .
Can you give me an example, Elizabeth... you can. Would you give me an example of uh... how competition is focused on something wrong?
When you think about the right level, the level at which value is created for patients we call that the medical condition level. But we don't define that the way a medical school would or the way a hospital normally does. A medical condition from a patients perspective is a set of interrelated medical, medical circumstances that are best treated in an integrated way. And so from a uh... medical school perspective that might include multiple medical conditions. But if I have diabetes and hypertension which thankfully I don’t, but if I had diabetes, and tight, and hypertension from my perspective that would be my medical condition.
This except is brought to you by the Massachusetts school of law.
Be creative: The best ad
Be motivated: A gift of love
"Can I see my baby?" the happy new mother asked.
When the bundle was nestled in her arms and she moved the fold of cloth to look upon his tiny face, she gasped. The doctor turned quickly and looked out the tall hospital window. The baby had been born without ears.
Time proved that the baby’s hearing was perfect. It was only his appearance that was marred. When he rushed home from school one day and flung himself into his mother’s arms, she sighed, knowing that his life was to be a succession of heartbreaks. He blurted out the tragedy. "A boy, a big boy … called me a freak."
He grew up, handsome for his misfortune. A favorite with his fellow students, he might have been class president, but for that. He developed a gift, a talent for literature and music. "But you might mingle with other young people," his mother reproved him, but felt a kindness in her heart. The boy’s father had a session with the family physician. Could nothing be done? "I believe I could graft on a pair of outer ears, if they could be procured," the doctor decided.
Whereupon the search began for a person who would make such a sacrifice for a young man. Two years went by. Then, "You are going to the hospital, Son. Mother and I have someone who will donate the ears you need. But it’s a secret," said the father. The operation was a brilliant success, and a new person emerged. His talents blossomed into genius, and school and college became a series of triumphs.
Later he married and entered the diplomatic service. "But I must know!" He urged his father, "Who gave so much for me? I could never do enough for him." "I do not believe you could," said the father, "but the agreement was that you are not to know … not yet." The years kept their profound secret, but the day did come … one of the darkest days that a son must endure. He stood with his father over his mother’s casket. Slowly, tenderly, the father stretched forth a hand and raised the thick, reddish-brown hair to reveal that the mother had no outer ears. "Mother said she was glad she never let her hair be cut," he whispered gently, "and nobody ever thought Mother less beautiful, did they?"
Real beauty lies not in the physical appearance, but in the heart. Real treasure lies not in what that can be seen, but what that cannot be seen. Real love lies not in what is done and known, but in what that is done but not known.
