This will be my last post on this blog, as I have left U.S. Preventive Medicine and formed a new company, Accountable Health, with a new Blog. The last few years writing this blog have been a great experience and I look forward to continuing that at my new site.
Accountable Health, is based upon my belief that the health system, and note I say ‘health” not “healthcare” system, needs two critical pieces for success,
- Accountability – all portions of the broader health system need to be accountable from the individual to the providers, communities to payers, device manufacturers to mHealth providers; each has a role to play, but that role must be held to account and focus on:
- Health – the system must become one whose main goal is the maintenance and improvement in health at an individual and population level.
Through the new blog I hope to share with you ideas, successes, failures and thoughts on how we can create a better system built upon Accountable Health.
