An article in the New York Times last year grabbed readers’ attention with its haunting headline: “Go to the Wrong Hospital and You’re 3 Times More Likely to Die”. The piece was penned following the release of a comprehensive study that examined the vast disparity of patient outcomes (22 million in all) from facility to facility- all over the country.
As an employee benefits professional, the report immediately caught my attention. The topic of patient outcomes and evaluation is one that me and my colleagues have been grappling with for years. Hospitals are risky places, and the hard truth of the matter is that patients have very limited resources outside of personal or provider referrals to help them gauge surgeons and facilities ahead of operation day.
Today, I’m excited to announce that I have joined on with MPIRICA as a member of its Advisory Board. The company’s platform is nothing short of a critical solution in a healthcare ecosystem that lacks sincere evaluation methods. It has all the potential to be the industry game changer. But don’t take my word for it. If you’re in the employee benefits space, head over to MPIRICA’s website and see what it can do for your people.
