The Evolution of Healthcare Infrastructure
Infrastructure is like Air: you need it all the time but only notice when it is broken. Today, healthcare infrastructure is broken, so everyone notices. Tomorrow, healthcare infrastructure could be working again. But only if a radical transformation takes place in measuring and managing healthcare. This book is about that transformation, what is needed and how to achieve it.
