The Healthcare Solutions Project

The talk about healthcare is trending in the wrong direction. Everyone cares about healthcare, and everyone knows that our system is broken. What most people don’t know is that the big solutions being discussed today won’t solve healthcare’s problems. There really is no magic wand we can wave to make everything better. But there are things we can do—and are doing—right now that will help us put a lid on costs, enhance quality of care, and make clinicians and patients happy. The Healthcare Solutions Project is a platform for healthcare innovators to share their stories of how they are making healthcare better, today.
