If one didnt know better, one might think that
hospitals set out to design systems that provide
the most sophisticated technical care but deliver
the worst possible experience to sick people.

We expect consumers to move into a position of
dominance in the early years of the new
century.Dean Coddington, Elizabeth Fischer,
Keith Moore Richard Clarke, Beyond Managed Care

Parents, doctors, stockbrokers, even military
leaders are starting to lose the authority they
once had. There are all these roles premised on
access to privileged information. What we are
witnessing is a collapse of that advantage,
prestige and authority.Michael Lewis, next

He shook me up. He put his hand on my shoulder,
and simply said, Old friend, you have got to
take charge of your own medical care.

Jordans cancer diagnosis)

A seismic shift is underway in healthcare. The
Internet is delivering vast knowledge and new
choices to consumersraising their expectations
and, in many cases, handing them the controls.
Healthcare consumers are driving radical,
fundamental change.Deloitte Research, Winning
the Loyalty of the eHealth Consumer
13
It may be the most far-reaching evolution of
them all the metamorphosis of passive patient
into consumer and well-informed, assertive
consumer at that. The defining axiom of
traditional medicine doctors orders is being
turned on its head. These days its the patients
who are armed, the doctors who must get wired to
keep nimble. E-health is the new house
call.Richard Firstman, Heal Thyself, On

Without being disrespectful, I consider the U.S.
healthcare delivery system the largest cottage
industry in the world. There are virtually no
performance measurements and no standards. Trying
to measure performance is the next revolution
in healthcare.Richard Huber, former CEO, Aetna

idiosyncratic and often ill-informed judgments

As unsettling as the prevalence of inappropriate
care is the enormous amount of what can only be
called ignorant care. A surprising 85 of
everyday medical treatments have never been
scientifically validated. For instance, when
family practitioners in Washington were queried
about treating a simple urinary tract infection,
82 physicians came up with an extraordinary 137

Harvard Medical Practice Study 4 error rate (1
of 4 negligence). Subsequent investigations
around the country have confirmed the ubiquity of
error. In one small study of how clinicians
perform when patients have a sudden cardiac
arrest, 27 of 30 clinicians made an error in
using the defibrillator. Mistakes in
administering drugs (1995 study) average once
every hospital admission. Lucian Leape,
medicines leading expert on error, points out
that many other industrieswhether the task is
manufacturing semiconductors or serving customers
at the Ritz Carltonsimply wouldnt countenance
error rates like those in hospitals.Complication

Geography Is DestinyOften all one must do to
acquire a disease is to enter a country where a
disease is recognizedleaving the country will
either cure the malady or turn it into something
else. Blood pressure considered treatably high
in the United States might be considered normal
in England and the low blood pressure treated
with 85 drugs as well as hydrotherapy and spa
treatments in Germany would entitle its sufferer
to lower life insurance rates in the United
States. Lynn Payer, Medicine Culture

Complications, Atul Gawande
42
Most physicians believe that diagnosis cant be
reduced to a set of generalizationsto a
cookbook. How often does my intuition lead
me astray? The radical implication of the Swedish
study is that the individualized, intuitive
approach that lies at the center of modern
medicine is flawedit causes more mistakes than
it prevents. Atul Gawande, Complications

Practice variation is not caused by bad or
ignorant doctors. Rather, it is a natural
consequence of a system that systematically
tracks neither its processes nor its outcomes,
preferring to presume that good facilities, good
intentions and good training lead automatically
to good results. Providers remain more
comfortable with the habits of a guild, where
each craftsman trusts his fellows, than with the
demands of the information age.Michael

Our entire facility is digital. No paper, no
film, no medical records. Nothing. And its all
integratedfrom the lab to X-ray to records to
physician order entry. Patients dont have to
wait for anything. The information from the
physicians office is in registration and vice
versa. The referring physician is immediately
sent an email telling him his patient has shown
up. Its wireless in-house. We have 800
notebook computers that are wireless. Physicians
can walk around with a computer thats
pre-programmed. If the physician wants, well go
out and wire their house so they can sit on the
couch and connect to the network. They can review
a chart from 100 miles away. David Veillette,

1. The Importance of Human Interaction
72
There is a misconception that supportive
interactions require more staff or more time and
are therefore more costly. Although labor costs
are a substantial part of any hospital budget,
the interactions themselves add nothing to the
budget. Kindness is free. Listening to patients
or answering their questions costs nothing. It
can be argued that negative interactionsalienatin
g patients, being non-responsive to their needs
or limiting their sense of controlcan be very
costly. Angry, frustrated or frightened
patients may be combative, withdrawn and less
cooperativerequiring far more time than it would
have taken to interact with them initially in a
positive way. Putting Patients First, Susan
Frampton, Laura Gilpin, Patrick Charmel

Perhaps the simplest and most profound of all
human interactions is kindness. But if it is so
simple, it is surprising how frequently it is
absent from our healthcare environments. Many
staff members report verbal abuse by
physicians, managers and coworkers. Putting

3. Healing Partnerships The importance of
Including Friends and Family
82
When hospital staff members are asked to list
the attributes of the perfect patient and
family, their response is usually a passive
patient with no family. Putting Patients First,
Susan Frampton, Laura Gilpin, Patrick Charmel
83
The Patient-Family ExperiencePatients are
stripped of control, their clothes are taken
away, they have little say over their schedule,
and they are deliberately separated from their
family and friends. Healthcare professionals
control all of the information about their
patients bodies and access to the people who can
answer questions and connect them with helpful
resources. Families are treated more as intruders
than loved ones. Putting Patients First, Susan
Frampton, Laura Gilpin, Patrick Charmel

others can have a far greater impact on

The Eden Alternative
110
The Ten Principals of the Eden
Alternative1. The three plagues of loneliness,
helplessness, and boredom account for the bulk of
suffering among Elders.2. Life in an
Elder-centered community revolves around close
and continuing contact with children, plants, and
animals. These ancient relationships provide
young and old alike with a pathway to a life
worth living.3. Companionship is the antidote to
loneliness. In an Elder-centered community we
must provide easy access to human and animal
companionship.4. A healthy Elder-centered
community seeks to balance the care that is being
given with the care that is being received.
Elders need opportunities to give care and
caregivers need opportunities to receive
care.Source Putting Patients First, Susan
Frampton, Laura Gilpin, Patrick Charmel
111
The Eden paradigm allows elders to care for
animals, birds, and children as well as each
other. Susan Eaton, Harvard/JFK schoolSource
Putting Patients First, Susan Frampton, Laura
Gilpin, Patrick Charmel
112
The Ten Principals of the Eden
Alternative5. Variety and Spontaneity are the
antidotes to boredom. The Elder-centered
community is rich in opportunities to sample
these ancient pleasures.6. An Elder-centered
community understands that passive entertainment
cannot fill a human life.7. The Elder-centered
community takes medical treatment down from its
pedestal and and places it into the service of
genuine human caring.Source Putting Patients
First, Susan Frampton, Laura Gilpin, Patrick
Charmel
113
The Ten Principals of the Eden
Alternative8. In an Elder-centered community,
decisions should be made by the Elders or those
as close to the Elders as possible.9. An
Elder-centered community understands human growth
cannot be separated from human life.10. Wise
leadership is the lifeblood of any struggle
against the Three Plagues. For it, there can be
no substitute.Source Putting Patients First,
Susan Frampton, Laura Gilpin, Patrick Charmel

The most basic question we need to pose in
caring for others is this Is this a loving act?

  • Healthcares 1-2 Punch
  • Hospital quality control, at least in the
    U.S.A., is a bad, bad joke. Depending on whose
    stats you believe, hospitals kill 100,000 or so
    of us a yearand wound many times that number.
    Finally, they are getting around to dealing
    with the issue. Well, thanks. And what is it
    weve been buying for our Trillion or so bucks a
    year? The fix is eminently do-able which makes
    the condition even more intolerable. (Disgrace
    is far too kind a label for the condition.
    Whos to blame? Just about everybody, starting
    with the docs who consider oversight from anyone
    other than fellow clan members to be
    unacceptable.)
  • 2. The systemtraining, docs, insurance
    incentives, culture, patients themselvesis
    hopelessly-mindlessly-insanely (as I see it)
    skewed toward fixing things (e.g. Me) that are
    brokennot preventing the problem in the first
    place and providing the Maintenance Tools
    necessary for a healthy lifestyle. Sure,
    bio-medicine will soon allow us to understand and
    deal with individual genetic pre-dispositions.
    (And hooray!) But take it from this 61-year old,
    decades of physical and psychological self-abuse
    can literally be reversed in relatively short
    order by an encompassing approach to life that
    can only be described as a Passion for Wellness
    (and Well-being). Patientslike meare catching
    on in record numbers but the system is highly
    resistant. (Again, the doctors are among the
    biggest sinnersno surprise, following years of
    acculturation as the man-with-the-white-coat-who-
    will-now-miraculously-dispense-fix
    it-pills-for-you-the-unwashed. (Come to think of
    it, maybe Ill start wearing a White Coat to my
    doctors officeafter all, I am the
    Professional-in-Charge when it comes to my Body
    Soul. Right?)
