As part of Big Ideas Theater 2018, Garry Kauffman, MPA, RRT, FACHE, FAARC, discusses the challenges facing respiratory care as a profession. Specifically, he focuses on making the transition from World 1 to World 2.
According to Kauffman, World 1 is “the way we grew up.” He defines it as a fee-for-service delivery of care with no focus on patient value, safety, or advocacy. World 2; however, is value-based. Hospitals now receive benefits for hitting targets. World 2 focuses on cost, quality, and patient experience. Collaboration is also a big part of World 2.
Big Ideas Theater 2018 was filmed at the AARC Congress 2018 in Las Vegas, NV. Congress speakers and lecturers shared their expertise and insights during these brief interviews.
