What Is an “Upstreamist” in Health Care?

“There are three friends who come to a river …”

So begins a parable from Rishi Manchanda, MD, MPH, who has a different view of our health care system. Health care, Manchanda says, has rescuers and raft builders to save people from drowning, but it doesn’t have nearly enough people looking for the root causes to the problems that plague patients every day.

In this IHI Open School short, Manchanda creatively explains why he’s an “upstreamist” — and why the health care workforce is still swimming against the current.

How Can You Create a Healthy Healthcare Organization? Treat It Like a Patient!

How Can You Create a Healthy Healthcare Organization?  Treat It Like a Patient!

Photo by: Vadim L / Unsplash

Quality improvement should be a system-wide initiative. Many healthcare facilities
think of quality only as it applies to the clinical side. They concentrate on outcomes
defined by accrediting bodies such as JHACO. Many businesses are like this
too. However, the best organizations use quality tools throughout their
organization. I want to show you the benefits of doing so.

As a healthcare professional would you even think of just treating one part of the
body to keep a patient healthy? For instance, do you think that just by concentrating
on the heart that you can keep the rest of the body healthy? Certainly
not! Healthcare professionals know that to keep a body and mind healthy they must
concentrate on the whole body. That’s why we give patients regular physicals.

A healthcare facility or site is much like a human body. All parts much function well
to insure positive outcomes–patient health, a good bottom line, and time and staff
to get things done. A hospital is more than just the doctors and nurses. The
administrative staff and all other supporting staff are important too. For instance, in
a recent issue of Quality Progress an article highlighted a change in food delivery
which greatly impacted profit and patient satisfaction. The hospital decided to let
patients order food from a menu much like any commercial restaurant at any time
convenient to the patient and not too unreasonable for the hospital. They
responded to patient needs and wants and saved money doing so.
