First Monday was pleased to host Mr. Howell Clyborne of Integral Leaders in Health – which created a hospital-doctor affiliation system that helps doctors and patients understand the current medical care situation and find a way to prioritize patient well-being going forward. If we define medical care as the perception patients have of our healthcare system, then our situation is dire as 70%-90% of the populace have an unfavorable opinion of their medical care due to lack of availability, corporatization, depersonalization, exploitation of non-clinicians and poor communications seemingly conspire to undermine patient well-being. And while all of these are important, none is probably more contributory than the clinical burnout experienced by so many good doctors who have lost autonomy and the sense of meaning in their work. This is why Integral Leaders in Health was created by doctors to help the situation.
