How would you reform health care? What do you think is health care’s most significant problem? It’s greatest opportunity? If you could change one thing about the way health care is delivered in this country, what would it be?
Any of the above (or extension thereof) should be a part of every conversation with any new perspective health care hire.
The answers are not not of much importance. Heck, the ideas discussed could be as good as prohibition, it’s of little interest (unless it’s really good!).
All you want to know is that a candidate has ideas.
Why? The money-makers have very little time left enjoying our current system of care (“enjoy” used in the lightest terms possible). We’re going to need a healthy mix of new thinkers with new ideas to mingle with the wily veterans to help us through the nasty transition.
