Healthcare that does more with less
TED@UPS asks: What if more expensive isn’t better when it comes to healthcare?
In the developed world, trillions of dollars are spent each year on healthcare. But as the industry keeps moving toward the latest innovations, affordability for the consumer sometimes is getting sacrificed. Jan Denecker looks at how other countries have learned to do more with less.
We won’t be able to afford the healthcare system as we know it today.
For more than 15 years, Jan has worked with the healthcare industry in different roles, focusing on marketing, strategy, trends and global supply chains.
Through his TED@UPS talk, Jan shows how necessity has led healthcare providers and suppliers in distant lands to find simple, economical and elegant solutions—like using affordable binder clips during surgeries or applying honey to disinfect wounds.
Rather than continuing to make healthcare more complicated and expensive, Jan urges the developed world to change its mindset and explore simpler, cost-effective alternatives that often can be just as effective.
