Global social make up is changing with advances in medicine and technology. A population that is living longer with the natural effects of ageing, many resulting in fragility, and the survival through illness that would have previously resulted in death challenges society to develop new ways of caring and treating people. The number of families and younger people to care is reducing internationally along with the resources to do so. Hospital care is highly sought after for its technical expertise and responsiveness making it a very expensive option for people with ongoing challenges needing care outside of these special areas.
This care needs a completely different approach with people understanding the physiology and psychology of illness, recovery, and what is needed on an individual basis, person by person, condition by condition, community by community. It is not difficult to do, increases quality and safety and is much less expensive as evidenced by results in the Patients2People portfolio. Enhance this with the technological explosion of opportunities this century care will be revolutionised with the person concerned.
