A top healthcare futurist and consultant shows healthcare professionals and stakeholders how to redirect resources and leverage innovation to improve wellness and lower costs.
Despite being the wealthiest nation on earth, the United States spends much of its healthcare money and resources pursuing the wrong goal: curing people after they get sick. In this provocative book, Nicholas J. Webb charts a bold new path that puts the focus not on reactionary treatment but on anticipation and prevention. Webb argues that we have a unique opportunity to leverage disruptive innovation to fulfill these goals. Emerging digital technologies now make it possible to collect, analyze, and act upon the enormous quantities of health-related data that every individual generates every day. This data often foreshadows disease and can alert the healthcare provider to the existence of a life-threatening condition before there are any outward symptoms, thereby enabling caregivers to pivot from treatment after the fact to anticipation, prevention, and, when necessary, reduced treatment to correct a smaller problem.
This is The Healthcare Mandate—a powerful and illuminating guide to the new tools that healthcare professionals can start using right now to:
- See their clients not only as patients to be cured but as constituents to keep healthy.
- Identify and respond to emerging health problems as early as possible.
- Access and share constituent data with other healthcare providers.
- Navigate the increasingly complex world of patient data rights.
- Meet the challenge of non-medical online healthcare providers.
- Address constituent lifestyle choices that lead to obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
- Respond to the increasing consumerization of healthcare.
Drawing upon his decades of experience as an industry expert with dozens of medical patents, Webb offers a positive and achievable vision for the future of healthcare.
In clear language, The Innovation Mandate shows leaders a step-by-step process to continually generate great ideas, implement them, and maximize their value to benefit both customers and investors.
In today’s ultracompetitive marketplace, the difference between success and failure is innovation. From small entrepreneurial startups to global Fortune 500 companies, innovation--the steady flow of new ideas--drives sustained success. It allows a company to introduce new products and services, effectively connect with customers, sharpen the supply chain, efficiently manage finances, and hire and retain the best people. Without a steady stream of new ideas, even the best company will slow down, atrophy, lose market share, hemorrhage customers, and eventually close or be sold.
The Innovation Mandate offers a clear and straightforward pathway to profitable innovation. It demystifies the concept, making it easy to understand, implement, and measure. The book centers around three simple concepts: innovation generates profits; innovation, in the form of new, profitable ideas, can come from anywhere; and identifying, harnessing, evaluating, and implementing these new ideas cannot be left to chance. Additionally, the book offers a five-point checklist to ensure your company is innovation ready.
Healthcare futurist and medical product inventor Nicholas J. Webb, explores seven key predictions regarding the future-and the reality-of America's current health care system. Based on current studies, The Cost of Being Sick follows today's trends of their logical finales.
Avoiding this imminent crash, however, can be done. With health benefits slipping while the cost of treatments continues to escalate all in the face of poor health routines that feed the disease process, there is only one possible course of action. Each of us must accept the responsibility for our own health-not only for ourselves, but for our children as well.
And here's the silver-lining: Not only does The Cost of Being Sick expose the cause of our failing health care system, but it also presents the cure. And the cure promises more than just relief from the problems we are facing. This cure also promises a better lifestyle and a strengthened financial position.
