Robert Wachter, MD., Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, and author of “Understanding Patient Safety” and the blog, Wachter’s World, is featured in an interview on Health Administration Degrees.
Dr. Wachter, whose site is featured on our blog roll, coined the term “hospitalist” 15 years ago in the New England Journal of Medicine and discusses what the term means and how it applies to modern medicine in the video, saying “(the term) reflects a major change in the organization of American Hospital care.”
Additionally, Wachter elaborated on the public view of health care today and how health care administrators can improve quality and cost of care, thus improving the public opinion of health administrators.
