Innovation Digest – March 2021 Vol. 3

Meaningful change in health requires two fundamental elements: 1) that we recognize and build the delivery system as a team that supports patients and 2) that we recognize, and act on, the unique biology, culture, preferences and outcomes that are important to those same patients. Teamwork and equity are merely nice buzzwords unless we roll up our sleeves, dig into the uncomfortable and messy aspects of the current system, and disrupt the incentives and power centers that block our path to good health.
