What was your thought process behind establishing Heartland Health Research Institute (HHRI)?
Most healthcare services are primarily delivered locally within our communities. With local care we can experience delivery issues that may adversely impact the quality of care patients receive. Because of this, local care requires local information that can fuel resourceful strategies to seek solutions. The purpose of HHRI is to ensure that decisions affecting our local healthcare system are based on verifiable facts that are objectively used to address healthcare issues.
Given the fact that the word ‘Heartland’ is part of your nonprofit company name, how far does your regional coverage extend?
The word ‘Heartland’ is meant to convey a Midwest-centric purpose. HHRI originates from Iowa, and was established to serve a broader market of Midwestern states. HHRI may certainly also establish a more national footprint in the years to come.
Why should I trust the information provided by HHRI?
Harvard professor David A. Shore said it best: “Trust is the currency of all commerce.”
Trust must be earned. When people trust, uncertainty about the future is reduced. To obtain a trusted reputation, individuals and organizations must consistently deliver products and services to the public with good intentions, benevolence and competence. Trust is the gold standard of any organization, but it is most critical in healthcare.
Performing research within the healthcare field will ultimately affect the well-being of the public, who rely on having the most objective and unbiased information.
With the trusted annual ‘Iowa Employer Benefits Study©,’ David P. Lind has been serving the Iowa community since 1999. By pivoting into healthcare research, David intends to make HHRI a highly-trusted resource on health-related facts in Iowa and elsewhere.
