Don and Tom's marvelous adventure

In preparation for a day-long mini-course at the 21st Annual National Forum on Quality Improvement in Health Care in Orlando, Florida (December 6-9, 2009), Don Berwick and Tom Nolan at the Institute for HealthCare Improvement are asking for your input on how to design a low-cost, high-quality health care system for the future.
