    Pooling the power of goodness to create change
    Author: Leah Curtin, RN, ScD(h), FAAN

    Commitment and compassion can do more to transform health care than any competitive business model can.

    Today's system and its leading actors are aligned with a competitive business model, creating situations in which certain patients (chronic, long-term, medical) aren't profitable-and therefore aren't desirable. The same goes for healthcare professionals whose values, specialty, or seniority make them unprofitable. We've managed to create a business system that encourages the worst characteristics any caregiver (actor) could have: greed, speed, and indifference.
