What’s your favorite thing about working in healthcare?
Further supporting and implementing the Nursing Compact license within the state would help bring available nurses to Pennsylvania in a much more fluid and timely manner. Discussions at the state level supporting national nursing licensure would also better improve the ability to support both urban and rural needs throughout the state.
What are the biggest issues facing the healthcare system in Philadelphia?
Access to care. Systems continue to focus on meeting patients when and where they need healthcare. Long delays to schedule routine studies (like MRIs and colonoscopies). Overcrowded emergency departments and limited access to behavioral health services can diminish patient outcomes and are stressing healthcare facility staffing. Adequate staffing for both the current system and the new models of care is going to be relevant.
What does the future of healthcare in Philadelphia look like to you?
Improved access through improved care delivery models. These models might include AI, increased virtual care, outpatient care, and ultimately care being provided in the patient’s home. Healthcare systems, providers, researchers, and entrepreneurs continue to evaluate models that will be accessed away from the acute care hospital, ER, and long-term care settings.
