Its a funny thing to start a brand new medical practice completely from scratch. To be completely unfettered, unbound, and perhaps a little unhinged to do things every way that you thought they can be done. It is actually quite a rare opportunity at Crossover Health for us to completely reinvent, redefine, and reimagine health care delivery, finance, and experience. Its an awesome endeavor – one that we enter into with humility realizing the challenges ahead, some confidence given our unique approach, and some swagger because what we are doing has very little precedent.
It reminds me of these guys:
Going down the rapids raw – despite the years of preparation, the preliminary surveying, and all the other typical preparations for any great adventure, at some point you just have to push off into the unknown and figure it out on the way down. Crossover Health has been in the works ever since I got my medical degree and finally having the opportunity to fully control the delivery system and to have free reign, nay, a mandate to innovate as much as possible, I look forward to the unknown possibilities with great anticipation.
As part of that discovery process, I always wondered who would be the very first patient at Crossover Health. I wondered who would be the person, what would be setting, the diagnosis, and how would this great journey begin. Well, I am pleased to report that we had two back to back visits by young patients who wanted to get their picture taken, sign our new patient poster, and show off their “sit-chi-ations”:
Two down, two decades to go!
