Putting care back into Healthcare

“What a broken healthcare system!?”, we’ve all found ourselves say in frustration.

You’ve moved to a new city, you fall sick. The chaotic scramble to find a doctor begins. The stress of making an appointment, waiting in long queues. And finally when you see the doctor, just a few minutes to make a diagnosis and a prescription. Not to mention that some doctors bring infamy to their profession by prescribing unnecessary medicines, tests and sometimes even operations.

We’ve all been in these situations. And yet, these scenarios play themselves out, over and over again. The break down hasn’t happened all of a sudden. It took decades to settle in.

However, change is all around us; the way we work, the way we shop, the way we travel. The pace of change is faster than ever before.

If we set our mind to it, we can change the way we receive healthcare services. We’re more aware today, have vast amounts of knowledge at our finger tips. We don’t hesitate to ask the important questions that concern  us, ask for a second opinion, learn more. We’ve got a new generation of doctors better trained, better informed, armed with the empathy to recognize the plight of the patient, and not simply run a practice to churn numbers.

More than any other time, a patient-centric healthcare system is needed now. Change is in the air and we’re the ones who will realize it.

We are the ones who can put the care back into healthcare…
