APPLETON, WISC. – FEBRUARY 28, 2017 – The following statement can be attributed to Dr. John Toussaint, CEO of Catalysis.

“President Donald Trump and our elected officials must realize that true health care reform can only happen when healthcare providers are financially rewarded to deliver higher quality, lower cost care. Patients must have all the information they need to make the best healthcare choices and healthcare leaders must be able to build a safe and efficient care delivery system. “Our government, insurers, healthcare delivery systems and care providers must work in concert to redesign the system to serve patient needs and reduce costs. Good for American healthcare should result in fewer people in hospitals, better overall health status, and access for anyone in need. If the replacement plan Republicans create does not address these concerns, premiums and the total cost of care will continue to increase and our system will remain inefficient.” About John Toussaint Dr. Toussaint has directly worked with CMS leaders to broaden their understanding of lean for government and has participated in many Institute of Medicine subcommittees. He is one of the foremost figures in the adoption of lean principles in healthcare. Toussaint was the founding chair of the Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality and of the Wisconsin Health Information Organization, as well as the non-executive leader of the Partnership for Healthcare Payment Reform in Wisconsin. During his 30-plus year career, he both practiced medicine and served as a hospital administrator, before founding Catalysis.

Deeply insightful, prescient proposals for truly transformational healthcare delivery system reform are foundational to a sustainable , efficient and ultimately viable formula in crafting value driven healthcare. Dr Denis CORTESE former CEO of MAYO and now ASU in Az.. has echoed these laudable principles. After 10 years of medical practice in Canada, and almost 2 1/2 decades of clinical and administrative work in the US in both the private and public sectors… I provide fervent support for the above stated visionary views.
