Laura Landro, a frequent and excellent writer on healthcare for WSJ has
written an article today based on 40 studies of 10,000 claims from The
Doctors Company and the specialty-specific lessons learned for safer care,
with examples given in obstetrics, orthopedics and emergency care. CRICO's
data mining for lessons in improvement is also cited.
