Throwback Thursday: I Was Lucky To Survive This Taxi Ride

Screen Shot 2016-02-14 at 7.37.09 PMToday and tomorrow, I'm going to be at the annual Society for Health Systems conference in Houston. I'm doing the Deming Red Bead Experiment today and I'm participating in a panel discussion tomorrow. If you're here, please say hello!

Last week, I flew into Cincinnati to speak at a health system in the area and I was reminded of this blog post from 2011:

Said the Unsafe Taxi Driver, “Well, Did I Hit Anybody?”

I still can't believe that all happened and that I caught some of it on video.

Back to the topic of healthcare, I'll probably blog about the SHS conference and some highlights, either tomorrow or Monday, so stay tuned.
