Care Coordination and Checklists are How We Heal Health Care

Posted by Ken Accardi on Jul 9, 2012 9:02:00 AM

One of the people I've come to greatly respect is Atul Gawande.  He's a doctor andAtul Gawande an author and we've featured him numerous times on the Ankota blog including as the author of Ankota's book of the year The Checklist Manifesto.  Some of the key themse that we strongly embrace at Ankota are as follows:

  • Coordinated care systems work better than isolated efforts
  • It's not necessarily true that the most expensive care is the best care
  • Checklists can vastly improve the quality of care

Today we bring him to you in video, courtesy of TED talks.
