The Power of Regenerative Medicine
Regenerative medicine refers to healthcare related to helping the body heal itself (as opposed to drugs and surgery). Regenerative medicine therapies and treatments have shown the ability to repair, replace, rejuvenate, and even regenerate, tissue that has been damaged because of injury, disease, or because of the natural aging process.
Science of Discovery, Art of Medicine
While science - the effort to better understand how the natural world works - is incredibly important to evidence-based medicine, the translation of science into practice needs to focus on the art of medicine. Mariam Clinics seeks to apply a patient oriented art in the application of science.
Navigating the complexities of regenerative medicine
Regenerative medicine is a relatively new field of medicine that, until recently, has remained primarily academic with a clear difference between study and practice. There are currently treatments for more than 50 different diseases or injuries, with as many different ways to treat those diseases or injuries as there are physicians practicing regenerative medicine. Patients, physicians, and innovators are seeking clarity, choice and confidence in a confusing, disorienting, and misleading environment.
misalignment of economic incentives
While all patients want to get better, what patients really value from their professional advisors is time and advice. And in that order. Unfortunately, the modern healthcare system is incentivized for health providers to see as many patients in a day that he or she can. Financial revenues come from the number of patients that come through the door and the number of (expensive) treatments that are performed. The system is designed for illness, not for wellness. And the patients' needs are not aligned with this economic model. This is why Mariam Clinics is shifting the economic incentives away from a provider mindset and back to the physician-patient relationship.
