Dr. Atul Gawande talked about health care legislation and the current state of the health care industry. He also talked about his book The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right (Metropolitan Books). In his book the author and surgeon uses vignettes from around the world to shows how something as simple as a checklist can produce positive results. The author’s emphasis is on the surgery checklist, which he says has reduced complications in surgeries in one third of the places where it’s been used - at no additional cost. He responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. close
