Book: Tracking Medicine; a researcher’s quest to understand healthcare
Author: Jack Wennberg
Teaser: When we study healthcare at a population, as opposed to institutional, level, a whole new perspective emerges- unwarranted variation. This is variation that is not driven by a failure to standardise, but variation that shows we do not have systems for population healthcare. Understanding the symptom that is unwarranted variation helps inform how we can fix the causes of lower value population healthcare.
