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?
