Patients who care about their health want to be active participants in their own healthcare. This is especially true for those seeking regenerative therapies. They also want an advisor that can help them sort through the complex and difficult choices. This has never been more evident than in the emerging field of regenerative medicine, where physicians, patients, and innovators are learning (or being reminded) that the body was designed to heal itself.
This realm of medicine is full of complexities and navigating these complexities requires patients to have a relationship with their physicians like they’ve never had before. Patients are already taking action by seeking out treatments all around the world; it would be great for these patients if they had someone (or some team) to help with providing: clarity in options, advice and guidance on which options to choose, and the relationship to give confidence in the choice of care.
RHM navigates the complexities of regenerative medicine with a MAP – the Medical Advisory Program or “MAP.”
The MAP platform is at the center of both the RHM business model and patient care. It is changing – and possibly revolutionizing – the way regenerative medicine is practiced and it will advance the study, practice, and business of regenerative medicine. The MAP platform allows us to help physicians navigate the complexities of the business of regenerative medicine, as they help their patients navigate the complexities of regenerative medicine treatments and therapies. The RHM model offers a platform where the interests of the physician and the patient are aligned.
Patients and physicians are beginning to realize the possibilities of regenerative medicine. While not a cure-all, regenerative medicine is offering hope to patients where there once was none, and this includes treatments and care for the “healthy” as well. Patients are more than willing to forego chemicals and surgery if physicians can help them understand and manage their own health.
Along with the evidence that regenerative medicine and the use of some stem cell based treatments are providing great health benefits for patients, the evidence from behavioral economics and social psychology reveal that THE main obstacle to achieving good health is human behavior. While the scientific evidence of regenerative medicine and some stem cell based treatments are getting better and giving patients a better quality of life now, human behavior often results in emotional and less than optimal outcomes.
