Figure 1 • 2013 AHRA-GE Healthcare Annual Summit Participants
Roy: We have to decide what business
we’re in. Healthcare in general is in the
business of fixing patients, and we need
to be in the preventive care business.
I think healthcare, through no fault of
anyone, just through a morass of regulations, reactivity, knowledge, technology,
we have focused on fixing, and we haven’t
focused on what we need to be focusing
on: wellness. I think that will change
Ed Cronin: I wrote down two key words
today. One is change, and obviously
that is the overriding theme of everything. The other key word is leadership.
It’s important for us and for our organizations to really work on this and do
things—make it happen.
