Unrestricted Healthcare Access as a Culture

Editor's Note: This post - originally published on LinkedIn - was written by Lisa Griffin, Director of Access and Referral Management at Houston Methodist. Houston Methodist is a Kyruus client.

Many have tried desperately to capture the essence of unrestricted healthcare access and in my opinion, come short. It is my opinion that Access has become a buzz word rather than a real culture. As healthcare leaders and I mean anyone who has a passion for someone who may be a patient at any point in their lives we are obligated to forge a seamless path to healthcare services. My passion is my driver to share my opinion.

I began as a baby in the healthcare arena. Yes, many of you were born in a hospital and before birth, your mothers may have received care to ensure a healthy entry into this world. Our lives are centered and driven by being healthy or trying to have a life free of sickness. I am committed to an attempt to speak to the brave few who share my same commitment to lead Access Optimization.
