A Call To Action Regarding The Patient Experience -- EPIC 2012

  1. 1. A Call to Action Regarding the Patient Experience Richard I Anderson October 16, 2012iander

  3. 3. "Of all the industries we interact with regularly as consumers, the medical industry definitely defines the low point in quality and consistency of customer experience. Most of us emerge from interactions with the medical establishment feeling more like victims than paying customers."iander
  4. 4. "Health care is broken. ... We have set up a delivery system that is fragmented, unsafe, not patient- centered, full of waste, and unreliable. Despite the best efforts of the workforce, we built it wrong. It isnt built for modern times."iander
  5. 5. “Combining the principles of disruptive innovation with design thinking is exactly what health care in America needs. We need to disrupt the current business model of health-care delivery. And we need these disruptions to be designed experiences that are consumer-focused."iander
  6. 6. “UX design has done a great job in the last decade of redefining … how we define requirements for products with digital UIs. But this has come at a cost of upward mobility in our organizations. We’re functional players that make tactical work more efficient. We’re not strategic players that help our organizations transform themselves."iander

  8. 8. “The average American physician interrupts their patient in 14 seconds.” A Doctor’s Touch, Abraham Verghese M.D., July 2011iander

  10. 10. “The problem with healthcare is that doctors are a stage 3 (of 5) tribe, a group of people who think ‘I am great, and you are not.’” TEDxSinCity, Dave Logan., May 2011 “We let our arrogance reinvent us… we thought we were gods again.”iander
  11. 11. “If I were to walk into a room filled with my colleagues and ask for their support right now and start to tell [stories of all the mistakes Ive made], I probably wouldnt get through two of those stories before they would start to get really uncomfortable, somebody would crack a joke, theyd change the subject, and we would move on. ... That is the system that we have -- it is a complete denial of mistakes. ... [However,] errors [in medicine] are absolutely ubiquitous.” Doctors Make Mistakes; Can We Talk About That?,iander Brian Goldman M.D., September 2011
  12. 12. “Medical education and residency is pretty militaristic. You fall in line or youre out. Trust me, Ive been there. If you are an outside the box thinker, this doesnt last long in medical school or residency. The egos of your superiors are too threatened. This is an important fact. Doctors have such a preoccupation with being right, they cant tolerate being wrong.” Rethinking Healthcare, Jay Parkinson M.D., TEDxMidAtlantic, November 2011iander
  13. 13. “The medical culture is not only uncreative, it is anti-creative. ... Why should doctors be creative? ... Doctors only have pills and scalpels. ... Our reality is very different from an innovative, creative culture. ... We fall into line. ... Whenever we treat patients we treat them with algorithms. We regurgitate; we dont think creatively. We also have this thing called a god-complex... And were just so frickin tired... And were terrified of the law.” Rethinking Healthcare, Jay Parkinson M.D.,iander TEDxMidAtlantic, November 2011

  16. 16. “empathy can’t be achieved with a one-time, remedial skills development course. It’s a shift in philosophy and behavior that requires daily reinforcement to make a difference. Trying to provide an empathy boost with a one-time investment without follow-through is a waste of money and can become a source of resentment from a staff.”iander
  17. 17. iander
  18. 18. “We call individuals ‘patients.’ We call physicians healthcare ‘professionals.’ Professionals ‘care for’ patients… Their proposals are not just suggestions; they are prescriptions or literally ‘physician orders.’ Patients who don’t take their medicine are not ‘in compliance.’”iander
  19. 19. “Learn about the problematic cultural characteristics that dominate healthcare and that need to change. Alter how you do design research. Don’t limit yourself to incremental innovation or work that’s narrowly focused on UIs. Question the advisability of doing projects that, in essence, only amount to putting lipstick on the very large healthcare pig. Escape your comfort zone in order to have the kind of impact on the world that you desire.”iander
