STEPS to Value Podcast Episode #45: How to Shift a Healthcare Culture to Value Holistic Care

Every parent wishes to have a happy, healthy child. Sadly we know that wish doesn’t always come true. Children with serious or life-threatening medical conditions often require specialized, comprehensive care. The mantra for anyone who works in the field of pediatric healthcare is, ‘Children are not little adults.’ Seriously ill children have a vast majority of special needs, including the size of the medical equipment, types of supplies, and extra care from a variety of providers. The old-fashioned fee-for service model does not fit with the level of holistic care that is required to help these children return to or maintain health. 

Welcome to STEPS to Value, a podcast that explores the intersection of people, processes & technology in healthcare as the industry moves towards a value-focused model. In today’s episode we will talk with Brenda Wolf, President and CEO of La Rabida Children’s Hospital.  In this episode we will talk to Brenda Wolf, President and CEO of La Rabida Children’s Hospital about how the hospital has become a ‘medical hub’ to ensure that children and their families receive all of the physical, emotional and educational support they need, not just during a doctor’s visit but throughout their young lives.
