Big Med. The New Yorker. Gawande takes his inspiration from perhaps the least imaginable of places: The Cheesecake Factory. Can health care?
Upon further examination, however, some aspects of his argument are mere common sense. Gawande argues that the larger health systems—which have overtaken the role traditionally held by private physician practices—are indeed the ideal arenas in which to both standardize care and measure its impact.
One powerful section of this article discusses the advancements trialed by Dr. Armin Ernst, a physician responsible for intensive care unit operations at a system of ten for-profit hospitals. He sees it as the temporary home of the sickest, most fragile people in the country.
How can we balance our wishes to receive personalized healthcare with the recognition that we need to be good stewards of our resources? How will physicians respond to this approach?

You may know the chain: a hundred and sixty restaurants with a catalogue-like menu that, when I did a count, listed three hundred and eight dinner items including the forty-nine on the "Skinnylicious" menu , plus a hundred and twenty-four choices of beverage. The kids ordered mostly comfort food--pot stickers, mini crab cakes, teriyaki chicken, Hawaiian pizza, pasta carbonara. I got a beet salad with goat cheese, white-bean hummus and warm flatbread, and the miso salmon. The typical entree is under fifteen dollars.
