Health Determinants for Individuals and Populations
As discussed in Part I, the breakdown in healthcare infrastructure has fundamentally to do with the lack of actionable data. The success of public health and personal medicine depend on simple models that limit individual variation sufficiently to scale effectively to large populations. These models fail for problems where the variation is greater than the model will support. Such problems require more actionable data, both broader and deeper. The crisis in healthcare infrastructure is due to the solution failures including the most common health problems in the modern era of chronic conditions.
