About This Book
The healthcare system has failed to achieve its purpose: supporting patients in their pursuit of better and stable health. Innovating for Wellness: Bridging the Gap between Health System and Patient explores the ways in which innovators are thinking differently about how healthcare should be provided to our nation’s sickest patients. In this book, you will discover:
- Innovative digital health technology start-ups and entrepreneurs
- The father of the Accountable Care Organization, who dedicated his life to changing how we pay for healthcare
- How healthcare is changing to fundamentally flip from reactive to proactive
Longyear explores these innovations through the lens of a patient and caregiver as his family’s tragic story reveals important insights into how healthcare must change to drive better outcomes. Healthcare is in the perfect storm for disruption as technology has accelerated and new payment models provide new incentives for change. Innovating for Wellness speaks to professionals, students, patients, caregivers, and those interested in the rapidly changing world of healthcare. If you work in healthcare, have ever been a patient, or are interested in the future of the industry, this book is for you.
