Welcome to the new members who joined WBL in the month of April!
Taney Hamill, Principal, Silopanna Consulting
How did you become an executive in the health care industry? Did you always have an interest in health care?
I have always had an interested in health care back to the days when I was a volunteer. I was actually a candy striper in a Washington, DC hospital in high school and I got to see how the providers – physicians, nurses, even volunteers – helped the patients and their families. I saw the satisfaction that they got from helping others and that struck a chord in me. I’ve always felt most fulfilled when I was able to do “meaningful work” where I could help others and give back to society.
What is one major challenge you see facing the health care industry today?
Communication and education. First, we as an industry do not communicate well with patients and families - we speak our own language of sorts. Second, we need to start educating people from a young age about taking care of one’s self in order to be healthier through the pipeline. I also believe that technology, combined with an increasingly tech-savvy patient population with a desire to take charge of their health care, will increase the sense of partnership between patient and provider. This will create a greater sense of being a "team", and including the patient as part of that "team" will provide better outcomes.
I also see a paradigm shift in how healthcare at the provider level will be paid. I see it moving from the current fee for service model to a model based more on outcomes, where providers are paid not for how many patients they see, but for how healthy the patients are.
