The global standard – International collaboration is in our DNA
The importance of going global
Here are a few reasons we believe in a global, standardized approach.
To encourage international collaboration
If we standardize health outcomes data globally, doctors from India, Germany, Brazil, the United States, and other nations can evaluate patients using a universal language: health outcomes. Despite cultural differences, they can learn from one another and apply new, creative solutions to treating patients.
To reduce health care costs
Health care leaders around the world are facing skyrocketing costs. More than ever, we need to know the cost of care and expected outcome of treatments.
It’s possible that physicians from other countries spend less on care, but see better results. If so, a Global Standardized Outcomes Set can help us discover new approaches that cost less and are more effective.
To accommodate a globalized world
Our world is smaller and smaller everyday. Health issues quickly travel from nation to nation. Obesity has plagued the United States for years. Now it’s in the Middle East too. It’s our hope that physicians internationally will connect through our data and encourage one another to pursue innovative treatment approaches.
