Radio Smart Talk for Monday, November 12:
Right before our eyes, healthcare in America is changing. There's no doubt the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is responsible for part of the change but not all of it, and maybe it won't even impact Americans as much as the other modifications.
Right now and much more so in the future, doctors will not treat patients just when they are sick or injured, but are instead establishing relationships between individuals and healthcare providers.
What does the future look like?
On Monday's Radio Smart Talk, witf will launch a broad-based, multimedia project called Transforming Health, that will explore the dramatic changes in healthcare as they are happening. Some have gone as far as describing it as a revolution that includes the use of healthcare results data, incentives for efficiency, penalties for hospital readmissions, and better coordination of care.
On Monday's program, we'll unveil Transforming Health and describe what's happening in healthcare today.
witf President and CEO Kathleen Pavelko, Dr. Charles Chodroff of WellSpan Health, and Dr. George Beauregard of PinnacleHealth talk healthcare's changing landscape.
