To quote Hammergren in his scorecard in the 'blueprint for change' I rate this book an F-. He keeps equating health care with commercialized industries such as the airlines. How absurd. What we need to do is take the commercialization out of healthcare.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
