Electronic health records. Value-based care. ICD-10. Practicing medicine in the twenty-first century has changed in many ways, but what is most important is what has stayed the same: The deep humanity in care.
Healthcare is ultimately about improving our shared human experience and to live happier, longer, more fulfilling lives. This is only possible through the joyful efforts of doctors everywhere, who deliver the best care for us and those we love not just by treating the illness, but also treating the person. As described in the modern Hippocratic oath:
“…there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.”
Today we celebrate those who practice the art of medicine and continue to make it better, especially our community of 112,000+ healthcare professionals. You are an incredibly dedicated community of clinicians, and it’s a privilege to support you and your practice.
As the complexity of care delivery continues to increase, we look forward to continuing to deliver new technology and services that support your success and all that you do for patients.
