Innovation Digest – May 2022 Vol. 1

Value to the patient is knowing that the entire system – from clinician to payer – is focused on helping them achieve their best state of wellness. We have a long way to go before everyone can experience that reality. Achieving health equity requires that decisions occur between the patient and their clinician. Sure, evidence and AI and practice guidelines can inform, but in that moment of decision, no one else is relevant, really. We spend too much time arguing about the bad and costly results of not having a system focused on equity and wellness.
