My focus on Humane Health
Bringing the impact of Personalised Health & Health Equity together
If you are reading this email or post, have followed my posts on LinkedIn, or heard me speak at a conference, you may know that I have a broad spectrum of interests and expertise. I’ve heard a number of times the common question of “how does it all fit together?”
The answer: Humane Health.
To start, here’s an unorganised list of my activities and thought leadership areas in the last couple of years:
Being Mission Driven
In the book Mission Economy, University College of London Professor Mariana Mazzucato explores the changes required from governments to drive transformative change. Her book uses the US Government’s moonshot approach for the Apollo space programme as a model for how governments can be mission oriented, and by using the same approach to partnerships, innovation, and financing, governments can address global problems such as climate change, mobility, healthcare, and education.
I agree that Healthcare needs a change in mindset - both from the public sector and the private sector. This change in approach can lead to making health more humane. What do I mean by humane? It is a vision where we achieve:
The creation of new consumer journeys that embed innovations that lead to better outcomes, both for prevention and sick care
An increase in screenings and diagnostics for all people, regardless of their income and geographic location
An improvement in access and affordability of treatments which people need to maintain a good quality of life
The removal of other challenges and health disparities besides access and affordability, such as time, cultural barriers, and other restrictions which affect vulnerable and underserved populations around the world
Greater diversification in clinical studies so current and future health interventions are tested on representative groups that reflect the ethnic and geographical variety found worldwide
Addressing the environmental impacts of climate change to reduce their impact on the health of communities
Equitable pricing models for new diagnostic and therapeutic innovations for all disease areas
New, scalable funding mechanisms which create a win for both the financial sector that provides safety nets for individuals and for the people receiving health support over the course of their lives
My Mission: Humane Health
How do we reach these goals for Humane Health? Through my work in thought leadership and business building, I believe that succeeding in delivering on the two broad trends of Personalised Health and Health Equity will get us there. Put simply:
