Five Ways We Can Improve the US Healthcare System According to Jami Doucette

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, it became evident that the US healthcare system is a resilient industry but is also a sector that has some important areas in need of improvement. In a recent interview with Authority Magazine, Premise Health President Jami Doucette provides in-depth insight into five key changes that need to be made to improve the overall healthcare system.

“The US healthcare system needs to take a more equitable approach to supporting the public, including expanded access to high-quality, culturally competent providers (as they often influence outcomes and equity) and focus on addressing specific social determinants of health,” Doucette said. “We also must prioritize a more preventative approach to care, helping people stay well rather than simply focusing on helping people get well, and ultimately avoid health issues that may arise further down the line. Lastly, it’s essential to ensure that healthcare providers have enough support — both in regards to mental health resources and in the workplace — to reduce unrealistic workloads and burnout.”
