About the presentation

There is little doubt that the current systems of healthcare delivery in the Untied States are not sustainable, so all agree
that changes need to be made. Nevertheless, thus far such changes have been both difficult and slow. The barriers to
innovation in a large medical center and suggested strategies to help overcome those barriers will be discussed.
