We view personalized healthcare as a broader platform that includes genetics and genomics but also includes any other biologic information that helps predict risk for disease or how a patient will respond to treatments. An example of personalized healthcare would be the inclusion of specific biomarkers like Lipoprotein (a) that can help to better predict risk for heart disease or stroke in some individuals. These biomarkers can augment our traditional means of assessing risk based on age, menopausal status for women, diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol levels.

There are plenty of reasons to be excited about personalized healthcare:


The United States consistently ranks second worldwide in terms of dollars spent for healthcare, yet we are ranked 24th by the World Health Organization for life expectancy.

Too often, we prescribe medicines by trial and error and a one-size-fits-all approach. But not everyone responds to a drug the same way. While most people may respond to a particular drug and dose, a handful of patients may have either very little effect or serious side effects from the same medication. Adverse side effects are a leading cause of hospitalization in the United States and a large contributor to healthcare spending.

Personalized healthcare can help us predict the right therapy with the fewest side effects for individual patients. It can improve the quality of care and decrease cost at the same time.


Studies have shown that patients fill and take prescriptions as instructed only 60 percent of the time. Why is this? Many reasons likely exist, including a growing culture of concern regarding medication and side effects and a growing culture of mistrust of the medical system. With easy online sharing of information, patients can very easily learn and share their experiences — including negative experiences and medication side effects.


There is no “silver bullet” to completely eliminate risk, but there are steps that can be taken to create a culture of safety and develop a high reliability organization. Concentrating on controllable versus uncontrollable factors (without discounting the importance of addressing issues such as regulatory compliance, malpractice insurance and the lack of coverage for more than 40 million Americans), healthcare providers can benefit by adapting solutions that help to fill existing gaps and fixing problems within their own sphere of influence.

Based on the systemic deficiencies outlined by a number of industry experts and the factors identified as characterizing successful HROs, the following is offered as a preliminary prescription for change:

1. Stronger management and leadership systems: Surveys have shown that healthcare leaders recognize the need to overcome the issue of misaligned incentives and fill management gaps that have traditionally existed in healthcare. This would include adopting a more rigorous approach to succession planning; aligning performance management with strategic objectives; creating a consistent and structured operating calendar to support business planning, and utilizing methods that help to identify and develop potential leaders in the organization.

2. Use of Six Sigma: Results have been seen at a small but growing number of healthcare organizations through the use of Six Sigma methodology (primarily DMAIC) to reduce process variation and eliminate defects. The next phase will require building on that foundation, achieving “spread” through best-practice sharing, and applying both DMAIC and DFSS principles where appropriate – going beyond individual project successes to transform organizational culture.

3. Mistake proofing: Healthcare professionals must not only make it easier to do the right thing when it comes to patient care, in some cases it must be made impossible to do the wrong thing – applying poka yoke or mistake proofing to prevent errors such as wrong site surgery or leaving surgical instruments in patients. These are occurrences that the National Quality Forum and others have agreed should never happen.

4. Use of change management techniques: Studies show that more than 60 percent of major change initiatives are doomed to fail, often due to a singular focus on technical implementation while neglecting the human aspects involved. To avoid becoming one of the casualties, organizations should use proven techniques to build acceptance and accelerate the pace of change.


For most, Complex Care is just one stop along the way in the care journey. The length of time patients stay with us depends on the type of treatment they need. The team works with patients to identify goals of care that will assist them in transitioning back to the community. This plan will include identifying community supports they will need when discharged. The only patients who stay longer are those with very complex and intensive clinical care needs, such as those needing long-term mechanical ventilation or palliative care.

The Complex Care Program provides compassionate care for patients and families who are dealing with a “life-altering” complex condition resultant from injury or disease. Our interdisciplinary team of professionals work together to support our patients’ goals for transitional care and/or meet their needs for continuing care. Complex Care is a part of the health services continuum designed to provide medical management, skilled nursing and a range of interdisciplinary, diagnostic, therapeutic and technological services to achieve patient identified goals and optimize the quality of life of individuals who have a chronic complex condition.

Complex Care provides transitional care to support individuals needs in anticipation of a return to a community setting (e.g. home or other residential living) when possible; other patients are here to receive palliative and end of life care. The length of time patients spend in Parkwood Institute’s Complex Care Program varies according to the patient’s need.

Complex Care also provides Respite Care and Residential Management for individuals requiring long term mechanical ventilation.
