… not a ra­tioner

Modern Healthcare - - Opinions Letters -

I have known Don­ald Ber­wick for more than 20 years and the idea that he is a “big fan of ra­tioning” is lu­di­crous. Don has de­voted his uni­ver­sally re­spected ca­reer to work­ing with the lead­ers in the med­i­cal and hos­pi­tal com­mu­ni­ties through­out the nation and the world to de­ter­mine how best to im­prove the qual­ity and safety of care de­liv­ered from the per­spec­tive of the only party who re­ally mat­ters—the pa­tient. He is the right per­son at the right time to lead the CMS and to help im­ple­ment the re­forms that our health­care sys­tem so desperately needs.
