Barrett Franklin: Moving Away From ‘How We’ve Always Done It’

Admittedly I was interested to listen, admittedly I was there early to hear Dr. Robert Jesse, the principal deputy under secretary for Health at the Veterans Health Administration speak. But I was surprised and interested to hear his insight.
A few highlights:

  • We have to be careful to use the “S” (standardization) word around physicians.
  • If data is important, it needs to be acquired as part of the process, not after it.
  • We need to know what we’re doing, not what we did.
  • Technology, especially those that drive transparency, will be a participant in the solutions.
  • We, Healthcare, are not that different.
  • It’s time to move away from “how we’ve always done it.”
