LeadNow! (Part I)

Kayur Patel, MD, MRO, FACP, FACPE, FACHE, FACEP
(0.5 CME)

For years we have focused on standard of care that is what we have been taught from medical school to residency to clinical practice. This has been the wrong focus for years we have never focused on what really matters.

Collectively we need to lead the entire healthcare industry’s energy from managing numbers to managing the pathophysiology.

How can we restructure our thinking to treat the root cause and the pathophysiology at grass roots and remove our focus from managing better numbers for our diabetics, our hypertensive and for hyperlipidemia?

As these numbers reach its norm as clinicians there is an innate desire to stop our management however this is the very thing that is wrong with the current system. This is when we need to ack this is the right time to evaluate the root cause of the disease and manage it at that level.
