If you are enjoying these interviews, we would value a review on whatever platform you listen to Perspectives on Healthcare.
Here are 3 things that stood out as Jim Batterton gave us a patient’s perspective on healthcare:
- The cost of healthcare services needs to be more transparent. There is no upfront pricing information for healthcare as opposed to other consumer services.
- There needs to be a better system for coordinating and connecting care providers. Information needs to be easily shared across a variety of healthcare settings.
- Creating a more consumer friendly healthcare system involves valuing not just the practitioners time but the patient’s time as well. Both need to be valued equally.
