The American health care delivery system is in need of fundamental change.… Between the health care we have and the care we could have lies not just a gap, but a chasm. (Committee on quality of health care in America IOM. Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century. Washington, D.C.: National Academy Press 2001)

The quest for health care that is just, safe, infinitely humane, and that takes only its fair share of our wealth… is  immensely worthy. ( The Moral Test, Donald M. Berwick, MD IHI National Forum Orlando, Florida: December 7, 2011)
