What is "Just Right" Medicine?

December 11, 2012

Victor Montori, M.D., with the Mayo Clinic Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery, knows what "just right" medicine is and he's sharing his ideas at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement Annual Meeting this week. Dr. Montori is discussing minimally-disruptive medicine, a new patient-centered health care model designed around the patient’s life goals and capacity to deal with the burden of chronic disease. Dr. Montori says,“Minimally disruptive medicine is about reducing the footprint that health care imposes on people’s lives. Medical treatments must be designed around a patient’s life, not life around treatments. When we readjust to this orientation, patients and the health care team unite to focus on reaching the patient’s goals — to be a provider, a spouse, a coach or a parent.”
