New on the Health Affairs blog: Barriers to Change

For the past two years, Health Affairs has published blog posts arising from the Center for Healthcare Management’s forums, held in Berlin. These events are unlike a typical conference — more conversation than presentation, and more participation by various actors in the health care sector than discussion of a single topic. An excellent summary of the entire event can be found here.

Barriers To Change: The View From Berlin

And the winner is…

An exciting week is ahead of us: the people of the United States of America will elect their 45th president. While as a cross-border commuter between Europe and the US I was usually questioned about healthcare policies the conversation has shifted to the presidential campaign over the last couple of months. I could now bet on who will win or chime in the ongoing social media discussion. But I’d like to offer a more personal perspective here.

It is almost twenty years ago that many young Europeans including myself went to the US with just two suitcases to build a career and a life. The motivation was that our aspirations and dreams would be fueled by the spirit of the American culture. Many of us were discouraged by the hierarchies of European cultures in which nobody listens to your ideas unless you are old and grey-haired. For us the US represented fairness and unlimited possibilities – if we work hard and build on our talent and knowledge. A dream that came true for many of us.
