The future is calling out for us to re-frame healthcare beyond alternatives – we must see beyond the dilemma of choosing disease management over supporting a healthy life.
The turning point is beginning through redefining the role of the medical system and in the shifting agent of individual responsibility and informed choice. The way each person, family, and culture within our society-at-large fosters being in health becomes the foundation of this change.
The future of healthcare will still require a technological vision toward disease management. But more critically, our healthcare efforts will come to depend as much on disease prevention, health promotion, and supporting unique solutions for each person to thrive.
