Welcome to the future of health!
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Now past the halfway mark for 2017, uncertainty remains on the policy front but no uncertainty exists in terms of the need to prevent and combat disease, equip consumers with the means to self manage where possible and address the growing senior population in ways and in environments they prefer. The innovators committed to value and preference based individual and population health solutions will succeed in making a difference.
The backdrop of policy change requires a constant ear to the ground and much energy and application of resources to navigate. Given this environment expertise and experience are top of the list to handle the uncertainly versus being paralyzed by it. Seasoned leaders guiding responsive teams and systems through clearing barriers, crisp decision making and disciplined execution will be the difference between organizations that falter and those that thrive; consumers and providers who feel well supported and those that feel the strain of uncertainty around them.
From planning and design to delivery, emphasize the right guiding principles. Align strategies and tactics with the principles of the HealthCAWS Call to Action:
- Meet the new consumer where they are on their terms, with the least costly and invasive service and environment possible to achieve their best possible outcome
- Limit unnecessary burden for providers and offer supports to advance value-based care
- Reduce system complexity and thus volatility for all stakeholders by simplifying requirements and processes; freeing up critical resources and mind space for innovation
The HealthCAWS principles culminate in Combining Accountability With Support-“the CAWS™” to get the job done. We invite you to be part of the HealthCAWS solution!
Best for Success,
Chairman & CEO
