The result of this toxic combination of unhealthy
lifestyles and focus on acute treatment is an
explosion in the number of chronic patients who
require regular medical care for the rest of their lives.

That’s why chronic disease treatment now accounts


for between 70-80% of healthcare costs in Europe.

”What we have now is a disease industry, an illness
industry. We spend almost 20% of GDP on sickness,
less than 2% on prevention.”

Rule # 4
People communicate

Rule # 5
Nurses are not
allowed to write
prescriptions
Out of concern for patient safety, many states still
prohibit nurse practitioners from writing prescriptions
without the direct supervision of a doctor, even for
precisely diagnosable, rules-based disorders like strep
throat.

This effectively prevents retail clinics from competing


against physicians’ practices in those states – even
though in the other states the patients are doing just
fine, at less than half the cost.

Redefining rule # 5

How about that nurses continually educate


themselves - including in use of new technology -
to be able to help patients better and faster?
An example

can communicate with any patient.

tested by
specialists
Redefining rule # 6

Patients also test themselves, for


example using their smartphones
Blood pressure.

Rule # 7
People are involved little in
managing and keeping
track of information about
their health
Redefining rule # 7

“..patients ought to be viewed as partners in


managing and keeping track of this information.”

Example
Rule # 8
Health professionals
wear white uniforms
Redefining rule # 8

What if health professionals decided themselves


what clothes they wear – including the colour of the
clothes?

In other words, what if they wore their own clothes?


Rule # 9
People go to the
hospital to get treated
Redefining rule # 9

What if hospitals go to the people?

“Doctors would like to have the possibility of literally
moving the hospital to the patient’s driveway.

That will only happen, if Denmark gets a sufficient


number of high-tech ambulances…”

Rule # 10
Insurance companies,
pharmaeutical companies,
and physicians have
contrasting goals
Redefining rule # 10

What if everyone working in healthcare


had the same goal?
