Maggie Gill’s views on the status of health care system in ever-changing environment
Since Maggie Gill took over leadership at Memorial Health, the firm has enjoyed immense success. However, Gill argues that tough challenges arise on a regular basis due to rapid changes such as lower reimbursements and regulation. Although the Affordable Care Act has availed novel strategies for buying insurance, access to healthcare remains significantly lower for hundreds of thousands of Americans who are uninsured. Maggie argues that the current healthcare system needs a unique vision for delivering care, for it to advance in the today’s complex healthcare environment. She added that Memorial Health must concentrate on quality medical care, well-being, and prevention.
Maggie advocates for population health as a strategy for improving the general outcome of health. This approach entails keeping patients healthy by educating them on ways of being accountable for their health. She added that health care agencies should focus on lowering the cost of care and making delivery of healthcare more efficient. Health managers should start viewing health care system as a complex and counterintuitive system before they start formulating policies.
