The patient in the center makes me impatient.


I have a theory.

Most of the phrases that are said in healthcare are useless

And most of them are repeated without knowing the reason why they are being repeated.

Well, I didn’t want to talk to you about that, I wanted to talk to you about something else…

About what?

Well, it turns out that I’ve heard a million times that you have to put the patient at the center of everything.

I’m not saying that that’s wrong.

In fact, I’m not saying that that’s totally true or not true.

But it’s clear to me that many people say what they say just to say, because they have heard it around.

Because then you see their websites or their emails or their plans and there is no trace of that.

So, my theory is that most people say things because most people say them. Not because they have internalized them.

And I will repeat, I’m not saying that the patient doesn’t have to be in the center or on the roof. I personally have no idea where he should be, I limit myself to see where he is, wherever he is, and study him. Or better yet, help others to study him.

Don’t expect Patient Reported Outcomes from me, because I don’t have them. That’s not in the medical records, which is what I exploit with surgical precision

But rather Doctor Reported Outcomes. The most specific ones, in fact.

That said, in this week’s lesson I’m going to show you how to put your study at the center of it all.

The patient?

No, your study.

At least that’s the way I’ve been doing it for years and I’m not doing too badly, honestly.

I mean, if you want to learn deep stuff and not precooked phrases, look here.
