… a won­der­ful choice …

Modern Healthcare - - Opinions Letters -

I think this would be a won­der­ful ap­point­ment. Hav­ing gone to many In­sti­tute for Health­care Im­prove­ment con­fer­ences, the work Don­ald Ber­wick has done is phe­nom­e­nal. He has got­ten many peo­ple in the health­care arena both in­ter­ested and mov­ing for­ward in use of qual­ity ini­tia­tives in their work­place.

So far it is the peo­ple of vi­sion who have taken it back to their re­spec­tive in­sti­tu­tions; too many still have not been able to ef­fect a dif­fer­ence be­cause the buy-in has not come from the top, and to pro­duce im­prove­ment of any mag­ni­tude much of it is top down.
