Happy 2014.

Yes, i am back..at least for now.

The journey continues and the hope lives on. The Accountable Care Act lives! Lest we forget, the real name is not Obamacare but it it the Patient Protection and Accountable Care Act. The aim is value not volume. The goal is to remove “health care error” from the lexicon.

Latest estimate is that as as many as 440,000 preventable deaths occur annually in US Health care settings. That is the same as one jumbo jet crashing weekly.

Health care must become more reliable..as Don Berwick describes reliability. “Do not hurt me, make me better, no not make me wait and do not waste my time, do nothing to me without me”.

Yes, we can.
