Find the Black Box, 2nd Edition, 2021
2021 Preface names those decision makers who have refused to consider my offer for how to begin to create a 21st century healthcare system for the past ten years. At the same time every new estimate of NEEDLESS HOSPITAL DEATHS has been greater than all previous estimates for the past 30 years and medical errors are estimated to be the 3rd leading cause of deaths behind heart disease and cancer. Clearly something has been missing in all of the efforts to make the Healthcare System better while having little to show for those efforts.
The last two pages of the new preface are stand-alone pages that list the questions never asked and multiple areas of expertise offered as courteous challenges to other experts.
A far better healthcare system can be created, but ONLY IF current decision makers will OPEN THEIR MINDS and allow me to contribute to those efforts.
“It must be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, not more dangerous to manage than a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution, and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new one.”
