Syndicated columnist (and Fox News contributor) Cal Thomas has written an excellent column about the “Good News… How Hospitals Heal Themselves” DVD and PBS program that I have written about before. I had a chance to meet the producers in May during a trip to the D.C area, Clare Crawford-Mason and Bob Mason. They are both extremely dedicated to this mission and I continue to be an advocate for their DVD program.
We can only hope that the mainstream media will pick up on this and start asking for systems thinking and Toyota-based solutions instead of creating more federal government bureaucracy to “fix” our current problems. If we can get more publicity that efforts like this, for “lean heathcare, then we will all be better off.
