It Is Everything

It Is Everything

What I'm saying is of the utmost importance.

The doctor-patient relationship is everything.

And it's dying.

There is nothing more painful than witnessing the decay of the most important piece of medicine.

Some blame insurance.

Some blame electronic health records.

Some blame the entire healthcare system.

Some blame the current state of the world.

It's everything.

But blaming doesn't solve anything.

It takes courage, frankness, and determination to save the sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship.

It will take everything.

Everything that matters.

Everything doctors care about.

Everything patients care about.

Everything hospitals care about.

Everything administrators care about.

Everything insurances care about.

Everything pharmaceutical companies care about.

Everything governments care about.

Everything global health gurus care about.

It will take everyone.

Because we're all patients in the end.

It will take everything.

Because it is everything.
