An old medical blogger is back (I’ll leave it to you to find out who it is).
BS in Health Care (not to be confused with David Catron’s Health Care BS) talks about the IOMs assertion that 98,000 people are killed by medical errors annually.
Despite all the resources poured into the system to reduce medical errors, not much has changed six years after the IOM report.
Why didn’t throwing money at the problem work? The reason is teased in a future post. Interesting take.
