Population Medicine, Book 2 of Ko Awatea’s Healthcare Transformation series, is now available as a Kindle e-book through Amazon.
The Healthcare Transformation series provides a toolkit for creating transformational change in the complex healthcare environment.
Transformational change is essential to enable the healthcare sector to meet increasing demand and increasing costs within a limited budget. Isolated service or process improvements are not enough: healthcare organisations must learn how to design and implement system integration and whole-of-system change that fundamentally transform the way care is delivered.
Book 2 of the series examines population medicine. It focuses on the 21st century clinician’s responsibilities for productivity, efficiency, better value, sustainability, equity, and the whole population in need. In addition, it sets out the wide range of skills needed to create systems, build networks, map pathways, engage both patients and the public, manage knowledge, build and use a budget, and create the right culture. This is the future, and it is needed now. Population healthcare, not institution-based healthcare, is the new paradigm, and clinicians have a key role to play in its creation.
