TP’s HealthCare 27

December 21, 2005 • Health Care News • Larry Benz

Tom Peter’s posted his rant on healthcare listing 27 of his beliefs.  Whether you agree or disagree with all 27, they are all very interesting, especially #12 which promotes EBP.  He also lists his health care reads that allowed him to “buff” up on healthcare knowledge.  Although both the Herzlinger (Market Driven Healthcare) and Millenson ( Demanding Medical Excellence) books have been written a few years ago, they are still relevant and insightful.  Herzlinger expanded on her thoughts in a 2004 book that was written more toward policy makers, providers, and payers.  I like the whole notion of consumer driven healthcare but unfortunately have not seen it a lot in practice.  I remain optimistic that more of it is forthcoming and am supportive of these efforts.  Thoughts?
