Health is Patients
Many efforts are underway locally and nationally to transform the way we deliver and pay for health care. These efforts aim to lower costs, increase quality, and improve population health. Achieving these goals will require time and patience, but they will also require some key ingredients Colorado should be focused on developing. We will need strong, collaborative relationships between payers, providers, and communities. We will need expertise and creative thinking. Most of all, we will need to listen to, engage, and partner with patients and consumers so that we get it right.
Our annual fundraising luncheon will feature Thomas Goetz, a digital health expert pioneering the use of data and design to improve consumers’ health care decisions. Prior to writing two critically-acclaimed books and giving two hugely popular TED talks, Goetz was the editor of WIRED magazine. He has served as Entrepreneur-in-Residence for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, where he created Flip the Clinic, and offers a new vision of health care in the US.
