The Medical Enterprise

Thinking big across the public and private sectors to create the healthiest population possible.

Tensions between health care costs and quality, the need for huge investments in cutting-edge technology, the balance between efficiency and reach, and merger-and-acquisitions fever all complicate a core goal of any nation: the healthiest population possible. The public and private infrastructure erected to finance and administer health services isn’t always patient-friendly, and the complexity of medical systems can stymie even the savviest consumer. Nonetheless, health systems, in partnership with insurers, philanthropists, and regulators, are well-positioned to think big and promote patient and clinician satisfaction while producing better outcomes. To succeed, they’ll have to engage investors and venture capitalists; tackle workforce issues, structural racism, and access to care; and confront privacy concerns and resource shortfalls.
