Ideas in the Wild: How Dr. Larry Benz Aims To Bring Humanity Back to Healthcare
What is the golden standard of healthcare today?
It’s an important question. Today’s medical professionals operate in a more disconnected environment than their predecessors. Compliance standards and excessive documentation keep them in front of computers instead of patients, and low reimbursement rates mean packing the day with appointments and sacrificing quality of care.
Dr. Larry Benz wants to humanize healthcare again. He wrote Called to Care to show his fellow medical professionals how to ignore constraints and build quality connections by treating patients as people, not numbers. He and his team know that patients who feel heard are more engaged in their treatment; more patient engagement equals better outcomes for everyone.
Dr. Benz wants to help providers reach new heights by breaking out of their current cycle, renewing their purpose, and improving the patient experience. I recently caught up with Dr. Benz to learn what inspired him to write the book and his favorite idea he shares.
