Navigating Healthcare – Patient Safety and Personal Healthcare Management

Memorable Healthcare from 2015

Posted in Innovation by drnic on December 31, 2015

The New York Times pulled together a list of memorable stories from 2015 (Medical and Health News that Stuck with us here)
– The discovery that Ebola is not cured nor over
– The ongoing war against epidemics and debilitating and now potential treatable diseases
– Anxiety and stress increasing (or is it increasingly diagnosed) and little progress in treatment
– The ongoing Drug Nuclear arms race of blockbuster (and unaffordable) prices for new drugs
– valuing time with the clinician for discussion of end of life care
– the sorry state of mental health in this country pales into insignificance with the chain therapy in Africa
– Despite real progress in treating Type 1 Diabetes unnecessary limitations are still being placed on children

Its been an interesting year and we have made much (rapid) progress. These stories are just the tip of iceberg and next year expect many more and heres hoping for some real change to a broken healthcare system

Memorable Healthcare from 2015 was originally published on Dr Nick van Terheyden, MD
