Donald Berwick Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Donald Berwick from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

It is, I guess, politically correct,
widely believed,
that to say that American health care is the best in the world.
It's not.
- Donald Berwick

The decision will be whether we ration care with our eyes open.
- Donald Berwick

Competition makes things come out right.
Well, what does that mean in health care? More hospitals
so they compete with each other.
More doctors compete with each other.
More pharmaceutical companies.
We set up war.
Wait a minute, let's talk about the patient.
The patient doesn't need a war.
- Donald Berwick

Any health care funding plan that is just,
equitable, civilized and humane must -
must -
redistribute wealth from the richer among us to the
poorer and the less fortunate.
Excellent healthcare is by definition re-distributional.
- Donald Berwick

 

We have really good data that show when you take patients
and you really inform them about their choices,
patients make more frugal choices.
They pick more efficient choices than the health care system does.
- Donald Berwick

I think health care is more about love than about most other things.
If there isn't at the core of this two human beings
who have agreed to be in a relationship where one is
trying to help relieve the suffering of another,
which is love, you can't get to the right answer here.
- Donald Berwick

I'm becoming more and more myself with time.
I guess that's what grace is.
The refinement of your soul through time.

Meddling:
Everything that happens in the world, or doesn't happen,
is NOT my responsibility.
There are more than enough things that are my responsibility.

one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.
The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine
day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.
The unending repetition is a conscious choice
in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
