I’m away on vacation through October 10th, but I’ve scheduled the posting of an article of interest most weekdays. Feel free to comment and share your thoughts on each and I hope you keep up your daily habit of reading the blog.
This article caught my eye recently:
From the early section of the article:
It turns out my mom’s hunch was right: My colleagues and I have found through research that big, academic medical centers don’t outperform local hospitals when it comes to common procedures. This upends some of health care’s most conventional wisdom — that the places with the highest volume of care provide the best quality — and suggests a different mindset for patients shopping for care.
We usually think large, academic hospitals are best. That’s not always right.
What do you think? Post a comment and I’ll do my best to moderate and approve them while I’m away.
