Next week, I’ll be traveling to St. George, Utah to address the Utah Hospital Association on Why the Future of Healthcare Will Require Unlearning.
One important aspect of unlearning is the embracing the art of asking a new question.

As this article explains the question is forcing health care providers to look beyond a patient’s numbers (blood pressure, cholesterol level, etc.) to understand how different treatment options may better fit an individual’s lifestyle and life goals.
In turn, because these different treatment options improve a person’s lifestyle, they are more likely to be followed. (Non-compliance is a huge problem in the health care industry).
