Complexity is the Inherent Human Nature

The endless Strive for Simplification and its Application in Medicine is wise, but not thru Technology as the only Overhaul

he complexity of human life is the meditation of social sentiment towards life. It is the upshot of his or -her continual effort towards excellence, where such distinction not easily achieved. Hence, It is more about the vicious cycle of projecting our limitless inner desires, and how determined we are to satisfy those desires. The complexity of a task or human endeavor is not necessarily for it is an innately entangled nature. But it is due to the paucity of applied strategy or how we are planning to make it pass along with harmonizing “Technology,” “Strategy,” and “knowledge,” also called Matrix (Triangle, Axis) of Simplification.

The medical science is just as broad as human anatomy and soul. Then again, It is complex, not only due to its material dimensions but under its consistent elemental emotional, social, and spiritual alternants. Simplifying such a combined science expects a vast amount of data administration were at times necessitates collecting, processing, and applying technology.

Data is the Catalyst for Optimizing the Axis of Simplification

Data is invaluable, so it is easily accessible when stored inside the corporate silos. The raw and unprocessed data can be used in millions of shapes and forms, and millions of reasons, whether legit or not. Therefore, Corporations have amplified ownership of the “Big Data” pits. Subsequently, they play a central role in the corporate business of data mining exploitation and adding to the complexity, particularly concerning medical practice. Along with the legitimate usage of health information and data, the Simplification of clinical practice requires intelligent algorithms or set of rules to make sure of their transparent and collaborative intercommunication.

Piecemeal Solutions have contributed to the Failure of Simplification

Healthcare technology has advanced a lot, thus helps simplify patient care. Still, despite substantial advances, patients expect more, physicians are dissatisfied, and a large portion of the world’s population is without access to realistic medical care. Politicians, companies, and media are actively canvassing on the issue of Healthcare by scattering it as the lack of proper healthcare coverage. They even make the healthcare coverage comparable to the Healthcare itself and Healthcare identical to the health. The majority of extended solutions by the leading startups are the piecemeal technologies that have committed to the healthcare anarchy and have devised a significant culture of cynicism within the healthcare community.

Failure of one or two Components of the Simplification matrix followed by failing Healthcare Mission

There is apparently a missing piece frequently disregarded, distorting the simplicity. The prevalent piecemeal technological innovations are not only intricate for routine use but also lack assuring proper interoperability. And- interoperability without a well defined transparent strategy and knowledge is destined to utter mission overwhelmed.

Metaphorically speaking, today’s Healthcare mirrors a congested forest full of an astonishing yet intertwined panorama. Nevertheless, it needs to be cut, carved, and rehabilitated into a settled choreographed ritornelle hall. This symphony hall demands a conductor, proficient musicians, and instruments to simplify the resolution by concerting the flawless tunes. The current collective approach to healthcare challenges is too rudimentary to the new community; thus, it is not only ineffective but is also too disconnected. It fails to deliver a truly personalized approach to medicine.

Medicine is Personal, and Personalization is about Simplification

To have a top-notch and affordable healthcare system, first, we must establish a personal touch, not just through patient engagement that is something currently advocated, but also the empowerment of every person within the system. The latter starts with the patient and the doctor.

Personalized Healthcare demands optimal Simplification, something which in turn can efficiently be rendered through honoring the Axis of Simplification. This means counteracting the complex nature of human physique, expectation, available resources, and make use of those resources efficiently. To do that, the problem must be clearly defined, and resolution strategies delineated. Once selected, the most effective yet most straightforward solution setup, they must be translated and coordinated in layperson footings.

Proper application of an impartial and coordinated plan would ultimately require full transparency, accountability, and corrective action plan serving the prerequisite to minimize regulations, avoid bureaucracy and monopoly. The right choice of a “Project Management Methodology,” such as Lean, Agile, or spiral, will come extremely handy during the process of Simplification.

The process of Simplification, the healthcare delivery model, entails undertaking the complexity at its root by warranting the custom tasks to be spoken for by the technology and not by the end-users. The latter is only practical if the end User’s requirements are clearly understood, analyzed, and utilized to the maximum.

Solving complexity is the key to reducing physician burnout, improve patient satisfaction, and ultimately health. While at it, it is vital to create Healthcare that goes beyond socioeconomic and geographic boundaries, not merely addressing aimless political and fiscal upheaval of healthcare coverage, financial burdens, and clandestine corporate schema.
