Berwick, CMS Nominee Continues to Spark Debate...

The NY Times ran another article (HERE) about the national debate that continues to heat up: Is Don Berwick, founder of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, the right person to lead the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)?  

It seems fairly clear that if good healthcare is defined as a re-distributive mechanism, then Berwick is the right choice. If it is defined as a system that improves when some level of competition exists, then he is an unlikely choice.  

Do you see it differently?  Add a comment with your thoughts.
