The Atlantic published a provocative article by David B. Kendall, a Senior Fellow for Health and Fiscal Policy at Third Way. He writes that medical errors and mistakes can be cut in half by following his formula. It’s an ambitious plan but one that he claims will save lives and money. Here are the highlights: 1)Set standards for data collection on errors and 2)Apply the right kind of pressure to prevent errors.
Much of what he writes in the article is not new, however it’s important that the drumbeat for such change become louder and more consistent. Since the medical community requires assistance in fixing this problem, elected officials have to step and legislate some changes.
