School Cafeterias. Patient Care.

September 16, 2013

I’d stand in line to get lunch in the cafeteria. Patrick Henry Junior High.

Enchiladas that were reminiscent of lasagna. Hot dogs that were reminiscent of plastic.

But it was the only food sold on campus. There was no need to make it any better. They had the ultimate competitive advantage for a “restaurant:” A starving crowd.

As hospitals build employed staff models, as they build ACO networks, and as they influence referrals within those “staffs,” will the quality of care go up, or will it go down?

At least I could bring my own lunch.
