Why We Exist 

 

There is a time and place for everything. I believe that this is an important time to create clarity and confidence in the way forward in healthcare. We have endured much change in recent years, and it looks like there is much more to come. In times of great change, it is even more important to focus on what we know is the right thing to do. In our collected best thinking, we agree that care should be centered on meeting the patient's needs - not just in their experience of the care delivery system, but more importantly, in moving them to a healthier state. Outcomes matter. 

Healthcare is complex, and yet in its complexity it is simple. We must continue to move our health systems toward creating health. Patients will increasingly demand value. We must organize our health systems to achieve obvious value that is easy to access on the patient's terms in culturally relevant ways.

Our opportunity for innovation in science and care delivery has never been more tangible. There is a unique role for academic medicine to play in applying research to care and incorporating more partners in the care setting that achieves the next level of outcomes improvements for patients and communities. Bringing this to every care delivery setting is also more achievable now than ever, in precision and personalized medicine that is increasingly available. 

There is an important role for health systems to play in the broader context of creating health. We will find there are less boundaries in healthcare systems - and more paths that bring together community, food, education, city planning, etc. to achieve better health.

Our work is to help you navigate the complexities that lie ahead. Our work is to partner with you and your team to create ownership and confidence in your future. Our work is to stay by your side to help see vision become reality when that makes sense. We are 100% committed to helping you find your way and you will not find a team that works harder on your behalf. 

We look forward to helping you find your way on your journey toward becoming the top-performing health system.
