Alex Lawson: A Patient’s Perspective on Healthcare

It’s a patient’s perspective on healthcare from Alex Lawson on this episode of the Perspectives on Healthcare podcast with Rob Oliver. This is a unique dual role perspective as he shares his viewpoint both as a patient and as a medical professional. Alex Lawson is from Massachusetts. This interview comes from the patient’s perspective interview marathon. It takes place 17 hours into the marathon which is almost 1:00 a.m. As I mention in the interview, I have not had a single break to this point. The wild thing is, were not even halfway to the goal.

Here are 3 things that stood out as Alex Lawson gave us a patient’s perspective on healthcare:

  • Healthcare Heroes help to ease the burden of illness and to settle uncertainty by providing compassionate care.
  • There is room within the healthcare context for the integration of both conventional treatments and natural remedies. The greater the number of treatments, the more options there are for better patient outcomes.
  • Reducing the cost of healthcare is possible when medical professionals scrutinize the necessity of medical procedures and tests. Eliminating unnecessary treatments can go a long way to lowering healthcare costs and increasing fiscal responsibility.
