In the past, infections were the most common causes of death—the physician’s challenge was to keep the patient alive. Today, with antibiotics and tests to identify the microbes, the most common causes of death are chronic illnesses—but our healthcare system is still designed to provide mainly critical care. Frank will join the call to share a new Healthspital model, where the hospital continues to provide critical care, but gradually becomes the center of a community where healthcare and health education are also provided in the homes of patients and out in the community.

Frank W Maletz, MD, FACS, has been a husband for 38 years, and is a father of three and grandfather of two. He has been a physician for 38 years, he’s a graduate of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, and he’s been a community orthopedic surgeon for 31 years. “But in my musings, meditations, tinkerings and mental playfulness,” he says, “I like to think I am a re-visioner of things and processes that are unhealthy, broken, fractured, fragmented, disjointed, dislocated, disarticulated/disarticulated, and in any way dys-eased.”

Frank envisions his mission as a futurist for global health. He will be sharing the work of Communities of the Future and an update from their Washington DC experimental meeting in February 2016. He will introduce components of the Healthspital 5.0+ model, a chapter in the book Preparing for a World that Doesn't Exist--Yet: Framing a Second Enlightenment to Create Communities of the Future by Rick Smyre and Neil Richardson. He will also introduce the idea of new models, new language and new thinking as emergent platforms.
