Can Hospital Chains Improve the Medical Industry? Interesting Article In The New Yorker

One of my favorite writers on health care is Atul Gawande, M.D. (author of "The Checklist Manifesto" which I highly recommend to all health care professionals and other professionals). He has a recent article in The New Yorker magazine that I highly recommend entitled "Big Med: Restaurant Chains Have Managed To Combine Quality Control, Cost Control and Innovation: Can health Care?"

Read this article when you have time and think about how you would apply it to your own practice or business. How do you deliver a range of medical or other professional services to people at a reasonable cost and with a consistent level of quality? Can the innovations in other industries be applied to health care?
