As time goes on we will continue to see more press in the news about healthcare and the lack of adequate provision of services. A report, Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century discusses reinventing the health care system. Included are mentions of increasing patient safety, patient centered care, and effective provision of services. The more educated we can all become about the challenges of the health care system the more effective we can be in managing our own personal health care needs. While it’s nice to think that the government will be able to make quick changes, history dictates otherwise.
