Ed Howell on the Transformation of American Healthcare

Healthcare Leadership

with Dan Nielsen dan@americashealthcareleaders.com

 

Recently, at a highly successful Becker’s Healthcare Conference in Chicago, I had the honor and distinct privilege to interview Ed Howell, Professor of Public Health Studies at the University of Virginia and former CEO of the University of Virginia Health System. Howell is obviously highly experienced, well read and informed, and is a very articulate and thoughtful healthcare leader and national thought leader.

 

The essence and content of our interview boiled down to this thoughtful and exciting quote from Howell:

 

“I am excited about the transformation of American medicine. Opportunities in the financing, opportunities in the organization of care delivery, and opportunities in the care process itself. Examples include precision medicine and care at the cellular and sub-cellular level.”

 

Professor Howell believes this transformation could well “create a second golden age of medicine in this country!”

 

With all of the negative talk and press, and with all of the very real and difficult challenges related to healthcare throughout the United States, this is a refreshing and inspirational statement that all healthcare leaders and professionals should memorize and repeat to themselves on a daily basis. It brings extremely important perspective to the reality and state of our current healthcare industry.

 

Absolutely, we have very real and very difficult challenges to overcome! And, it will not be easy or quick. But think about it—how can you not be inspired and excited by the highly likely reality of this well-informed statement and perspective? I, for one, join Ed Howell in his optimism regarding the positive future of healthcare in America!

 

“I am excited about the transformation of American medicine. Opportunities in the financing, opportunities in the organization of care delivery, and opportunities in the care process itself.”

 

So well put! So worth the time, energy and effort! Together, lets make it happen!
