for fundamental reforms in the health care system.
It identified deficiencies and problems that contribute

by Dr. Kenneth D. Coburn, CEO & President of Health
Quality Partners, and Tim Hediger, Director of Improving
Systems at Doylestown Hospital, will provide ideas for
your own “fundamental reform initiatives.”

processes and outcomes and to detect areas for improvement
(results, cost containment, value-based purchasing rewards,
etc.). Additionally, measurement leads to monitoring.
