The most frequently used picture to describe the health care systems is: «in the center of healthcare is the patient.» Is this appropriate? Is healthcare not more about a relationship? A relationship between someone asking for help and someone trying to relieve the suffering of another human being? And in this sense, it is not in essence a relationship of mutual trust and love
- How do we design this relationship? (In the case of an emergency, in the case of a person with multiple chronic diseases, in the case of language and/or cultural barriers? etc.)
- What are the core needs and expectations of the patient?
- What are the core requirements for a healthcare provider to be a caring partner in this relationship?
- How do we build an environment that allows for such a humane interaction?
Let’s discuss these questions and come up with a meaningful agenda for the future of healthcare here and globally.
