The Patient As Team: American Indian Healthcare and the Transorganization - A Shout for Leadership.

S D Med 2019 Mar;72(3):114-118

Sanford Clinic - Infectious Disease, Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

American Indian health care in the state of South Dakota meets the definition of a humanitarian crisis and as such is being called a third-world country within its own borders. This dizzying challenge will require an out-ofthe-box but previously successful Transorganization, to address a problem which will never be solved by separate organizations operating in silos. It will also require visionary leadership to shine a permanent light on this conundrum, inviting all physicians and healthcare systems to join together as a team of teams, until this situation is transformed. The urgency of this matter demands much more than the typical call for leadership. It demands a shout.
