From Washington, we get a physical therapist’s perspective on healthcare from Carol Ann Davidson. It is a reunion of sorts on the Perspectives on Healthcare Podcast with Rob Oliver. Carol Ann was Rob’s physical therapist over 25 years ago when he was rehabilitating from his spinal cord injury. She is a member of Generation X and in addition to being a physical therapist, Carol Ann is a wellness and yoga instructor.
Here are 3 things that stood out as Carol Ann Davidson gave us a physical therapist’s perspective on healthcare:
· The numbers have become increasingly important in documenting progress to justify a course of treatment to the insurance company.
· Quality healthcare is about engaging with people on an individual level, getting to know your patient and listening to them.
· People go into healthcare because they truly want to help people. Often, the biggest problems for medical professionals are a result of the system, not the patients.
