In my last post, I outlined the current need for a health revolution. Cost, lack of evidence-based practices, and perhaps greatest of all, cultural change, are the issues preventing a system of health from being sustainable and effective.

We are in need of a change in our approach to health. Over time, we’ve seen the attempts at incremental change. We’ve witnessed this in our recent health care reform debates. But at this point in time, if you continue to do what you’ve done, you will get what you’ve got thus far. And that is a “system” that is broken in many places.

A system of health needs to be seamless along the continuum of health – from disease to the absence of disease. It needs to focus on the mechanisms of health and on optimizing human performance within all contexts of health. It needs to be truly client-focused. It needs to be built on a foundation of learning and transformation at the level of the individual, in order to then foster cultural change socially and politically.

We are in need of a Revolution – and it starts today with the unveiling of the Smart Life Project.
