Managing Health Culture
The guiding behaviors, beliefs, values, and shared understanding of patients, care givers, physicians and other care providers trying to improve individual patient outcomes.
The funding of the healthcare system today is designed to: treat conditions and provide services. While members of the healthcare system do everything they can to help patients “manage health”, the healthcare reimbursement system has historically only paid for healthcare services, only if the conditions can justify them. Our technology is built to bring efficiency and effectiveness to treating conditions and providing services. Our scientific research is designed to answer how best to treat conditions and measure service quality. There is little research on managing health such as whether patients walk again after hip replacements. Now that new reimbursement models are beginning to pay for quailty and “managing individual health, a new managing health culture will emerge that will improve health and health outcomes.more on Managing Health Culture
