Healthcare leaders offer ideas to fix healthcare

January 11, 2019

A recent article on the Forbes website asked healthcare leaders to offer their three best ideas to fix healthcare and asked readers to vote on the ones they thought were best.

Among the 18 ideas in the article were several that were facilities/location-oriented.  Dr. Zubin Damania (aka ZDoggMD), the voice of the Health 3.0 movement, suggested — among other things —  that healthcare facilities go “ where patients need us,” using telehealth, phone visits, secure email and Skype to improve convenience and satisfaction.

Dr. David Feinberg, former CEO of Geisinger Health and now at Google in a leadership role suggested closing the majority of hospitals and reassign doctors to community- and home-based healthcare roles that help people get or stay healthy.

Feinberg also suggested providing free transportation to anyone who needs it because “getting someone to the doctor is a lot cheaper than having the ambulance come two days later” for a medical emergency.
