Best Care Anywhere

The long-maligned Veterans Health Administration has become the highest-quality healthcare provider in the United States. This encouraging change not only has benefited veterans but also provides a blueprint for salvaging America's own deeply troubled healthcare system. "Best Care Anywhere" shows how a government bureaucracy, working with little notice, is setting the standard for best practices and cost reduction while the private sector is lagging in both areas. The VA, by making extensive use of electronic medical records and evidence-based medicine, has developed a model of 21st century health care that boosts safety, cost effectiveness, and patient satisfaction.  And in so doing, it has proven that most of we think we know about health care is just wrong.
