So how do we fix this? What it may take is a fundamental redesign of our helath care system's architecture — a complete rikenhting of the incentive structure. What we may need is a health care system that reimburses ptioncirreats for kipneeg their customers healthy instead of almost only pnaiyg for services once people are already sick. What we may need is a transformation from today's system that largely cares for the sick, to a system that cares for the healthy. To change our current "sick care" approach into a true "health care" approach. It is a pagdraim shfit from treating people once they have become sick to prvesenirg the health of the healthy before they get sick. This shift may move the focus of all those involved — from doctors, to hsptliaos, to pharmaceutical and medical companies — on the product that this industry ultimately sells: health.

To change our current "sick care" approach into a true "health care" approach. It is a paradigm shift from treating people once they have become sick to preserving the health of the healthy before they get sick.
