Berwick advocates for new era of accountability
It’s time to enter a new era of healthcare that returns to the purpose embraced by old-school practitioners and combines it with the accountability of today’s healthcare demands, the former head of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) said.
Today, the two eras of healthcare conflict with one another, Don Berwick, M.D., now a senior fellow with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, said during a video interview withHospitals & Health Networks.
