Thriving Health Systems

HealthePeople - Achieving Healthy and Thriving Future for All People, Communities, Countries and World

   This strategy was created with belief that we can help reach vision of healthy people and healthy and thriving future via a strategy of high performance health systems for all that are self-perpetuating, affordable, accessible, person-centered, “e” enabled, prevention-oriented, and producing high health quality, outcomes and status.

   Such systems, partly physical and partly virtual and put into place by collaborative private and public partnerships, will greatly improve accessibility, quality, affordability and health status for all people.

   To positively change that future and achieve healthy people, “HealthePeople - Building a Healthy and Thriving Future” combines the best of all strategies to achieve healthy people and achieve a healthy and thriving future for you, your communities, your country, and our world.

HealthePeople - Achieving Healthy and Thriving Future for America's People and America

   America needs effective transformation as we spend over 1/6th (about $3.6 trillion in 2018)  of our economy on health without producing a healthy America or a healthy people.

  We are on a challenging journey toward reforming the American health system and improving America's health. America enacted substantial health care reform in 2010 that is a major improvement, especially for un- and underinsured. Unfortunately, there is much needed health reform that the law could have addressed better and ensure the health of all Americans.

   To positively change that future and achieve healthy people, “HealthePeople - Building a Healthy and Thriving Future”  offers integrated strategy and effective reform that would result in accessible, affordable and high quality American health system. Combining best of all our strategies, we can achieve healthy people and achieve healthy and thriving future for America.

Our worst fear! Worst (future) pandemic ever! 

Our worst fear should not be the current COVID-19 pandemic. It should not be the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic. It should be a future pandemic that could be much worse than COVID-19 or Spanish Flu. Worse because it could be much more transmissible. Worse because it could be much more lethal. Worse because we do not prevent or control the pandemic. Worse because it kills most, if not all, humans.

What is the “worst pandemic” that we would most have to fear and be least likely to prevent or control?

Our worst fear

Proposed Global Surveillance and Response System for Infectious Diseases

Draft GS&RS proposal by Gary Christopherson to Surveillance & Response Subcommittee, consisting of multiple agency representatives of U.S. health agencies. Never approved. If it was in place, much illness and death from COVID-19 could have been avoided.

Earth map

"As envisioned, a global surveillance and response system for infectious diseases (GS&RS) brings to bear resources worldwide that prevent and, when failing that, control diseases infecting plants, animals and human beings.

As such, the GS&RS should be an interlinked and robust network of international, regional, national and local efforts designed to a) carry out surveillance of infectious diseases worldwide, b) prevent disease outbreaks whenever possible, c) increase our understanding of how to prevent and treat/cure these diseases, d) develop the tools necessary to prevent and treat/cure these diseases, and e) respond early and effectively when disease outbreaks occur anywhere in the world.

GS&RS’ effectiveness is to be measured by the absence of harmful infectious diseases and the related morbidity and mortality prevented."

New: HealthePeople Strategy Before, During and After Pandemics.

HealthePeople’s primary focus is on people getting and being healthy. And it understands and takes on challenges posed by human pandemics. COVID-19 is just the latest and one of the most challenging. HealthePeople, as should current health system(s), will succeed by successfully addressing human pandemics simultaneously with achieving and maintaining healthy persons, communities, countries, and world.

When in place, HealthePeople Thriving Health Systems provide a coordinated community strategy to successfully manage pandemics (like COVID) and all other health conditions (non-COVID) simultaneously and successfully.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Until COVID-19 is no longer a threat, make sure you take protective measures to keep your loved ones, your community, and yourself as safe as possible.

For information on COVID-19 and what you should do, let me suggest the Centers for Disease Control (www.CDC.gov ) and CNN (TV or website - www.CNN.com ) They are both pretty good on keeping their information current throughout the day.
