Time to shift our thinking: From health as an expense to health as a personal investment
It's baffling to understand the misalignment between our perception of health (health is wealth) and what we actually do about it. While "health" carries tremendous value; it has tipped more toward the concept of health being costly (and it is!). It's about time we re-shape the way we view health - from a purely expense-driven, costly endeavor into health as a process of driving economic and social value, not only for the healthcare providers and systems but for patients themselves. How? Get patients involved; let them own their health information and make them accountable for their health outcomes. Self Care accountability and commitment could help drive accomplishments.
