An Intel executive, Eric Dishman, compares the U.S. health care system to computing in 1959, tethered to big and unwieldy main-frame systems. As our aging population booms, he argues that it is important for the U.S. to reform the health care system by creating a personal, networked, home-based health care system for all. Cross reference to the “Chronic Care Model” and how to improve Chronic Illness Care.

Following up on my blog post of yesterday regarding “Patient-Centered Care”, the following is a link to a bold and thought-provoking talk by Eric Dishman on how the U.S. health care system can be improved: http://www.ted.com/talks/eric_dishman_take_health_care_off_the_mainframe.html.  Mr. Dishman, who works for Intel, argues that the U.S. health care system is like computing in 1959, tethered to big and unwieldy main-frame systems … with hospitals, doctors, nursing homes, etc.  As our aging population booms, he argues that it is important for the U.S. to create a personal, networked, home-based health care system for all.
Chronic Care Model of Health Care DeliveryAlthough he does not say it in so many words, Dishman is talking about reforming the health care delivery system, specifically the “Chronic Care Model.”  If you have eight hours to spare, go to the Research Channel and  view the series "Epidemiology -- Research in Improving Chronic Illness Care".  This 8 part series presents a strong case for a paradigm-shift for better care of the chronically ill … that just might change how you look at the current health care delivery system and how it can be improved.
