Simplifying the complexities of health care delivery

Roy Smythe

In his monthly Forbes column, HX360 CEO Roy M. Smythe ponders how to restructure the way that care is delivered to populations and individual patients.


“I personally know of no other ‘system’ that is more complex, or less predictable than health care. So… why do we deliver care using such hierarchical, top-down structures?

Next-generation digital technologies can collect clinical data in “real time,” and at “all times” – both in individuals, and populations. However, we must go beyond these tools to harness the power of ‘complex adaptive systems’ in health care.

From personalized medicine to wireless technology in clinical settings, 2015 stands to be yet another breakout year in the convergence of technology, increased patient engagement and measurably improved medical outcomes.”
