  1. I am impressed with Dr.Berwick.He is the one we need to direct medical care. There are two kinds of doctor. 1- Physicians as Dr. Berwick, who want better medical for everyone and 2- entrepreneurs who happen to have an MD degree and are just interested in making money

  2. Howard–
    Thanks you– and welcome to the blog.
    You’re absolutely right. And one only has to listen to Berwick speak for about 10 minutes to recognize who he is.
    That’s why I put the clips up.

  3. Very interesting observations by Dr. Berwick in the video segment “Is American Health Care the Best in the World?” He referenced the same mortality information that I reference regarding what he emphatically states is not the best health care in the world. He refers to at least a dozen other countries; the exact number is eighteen other countries. The USA is 19th out of 19 countries. Here is more about preventable diseases, including that information.
