Physician and writer Atul Gawande addressed the complexity, cost, and surprising lack of efficacy of our healthcare system in a TED Talk on Apr 16, 2012, called “How do we heal medicine?” He concluded our medical systems are broken. Medicine is capable of extraordinary (and expensive) treatments, but is losing its core focus: actually treating people. Gawande suggests we take a step back and look at new ways to do medicine—with fewer cowboys and more pit crews—that is, more teamwork.
