My favorite healthcare quotes

“There are more than 9,000 billing codes for individual procedures and units of care. But there is not a single billing code for patient adherence or improvement, or for helping patients stay well.”

“De kritische parameter waar we naar op zoek zijn, is de verhouding tussen wat de interventie kost en wat ze oplevert aan gezondheid”

Lieven Annemans, Gezondheidseconomie voor niet-economen

“In health care, the overarching goal for providers, as well as for every other stakeholder, must be improving value for patients, where value is defined as the health outcomes achieved that matter to patients relative to the cost of achieving those outcomes.”

Michael E. Porter & Thomas H. Lee, The strategy that will fix health care (HBR, 2013)

“Capitation is better than fee-for-service, but it shifts the provider’s focus on not losing money instead of making things better for patients.”

Thomas H. Lee

“I have been struck again and again by how important measurement is to improving the human condition.”

Bill Gates

Life is more than quotes

Healthcare quotes are nice to read and to quote, of course. But If you are interested in books on healthcare, healthcare management, healthcare innovation or healthcare strategy, then you’re in the right place. On my blog, you find more opinions and healthcare-related content.
