Description:
If a healthcare service is unplanned it cannot hope or expect to advance and improve in an expectant manner. Progress, if any, will be unpredictable and haphazard. Spending on health will be reactive rather than proactive. It is inevitable that money will be wasted on low value care, while genuinely effective therapies remain underfunded. Downstream, the money runs out and patients have their treatment denied or deferred. For these reasons, strategy is important. Healthcare strategies are about making the choices that best meet the needs of patients. Healthcare must be mindful about what it is trying to achieve and who is its beneficiary.
