Breathing Life into a Dying System: Recreating Healthcare from Within
Volume 5, Number 3 - Reflections, The SoL Journal

by Katrin Kaeufer, Otto Scharmer and Ursula Versteegen

Often lost in the debate about healthcare reform are the individual patients and caregivers who make up the system. However, by engaging in an open dialogue with the community, a restive group of physicians in rural Germany is reinventing the local healthcare system from the ground up. They also are discovering a powerful opportunity for personal and systemic change: the doctor-patient relationship. The authors, active participants in this initiative and long-time contributors to the SoL community, describe the promising changes unfolding in their region and offer a framework that applies to other systems in need of renewal.
