We’re talking about changing how we think about healthcare and health in general.
The language of Medicine has to change. What’s in a name? Everything.
Doctors should be first and foremost teachers (original meaning of doctor) and not providers; patients should be active participants (partners) and not consumers.
Conventional wisdom, common sense, accountability, honesty, compassion, and empathy could drive many “new” kinds of innovation in healthcare: life-style medicine, mind-body medicine, inter-professional integrative medicine, etc.
Innovation does not always have to come from science and technology alone.
