HHDS.00 - Handbook of Healthcare Delivery Systems: Table of Contents

This book looks fun. Lets read it together.

Maybe not. Its 800 pages. Instead, summaries of each chapter will be posted. They'll be designed for audio (search in podcast app: Gregory Schmidt), and mirrored to a YouTube playlist. For those who prefer, at text summary will likely be available as blogposts.

Why are we reading a book from 2010? Isn't that old. Yes. It is. But I bought a few years ago, and just recently finished [2018] Internal Medicine board exams - so theres time at last to read it. It will also be quite helpful for fifth year residency work in healthcare system design.
