Michael R. Udwin, MD, FACOG, Medical Director, Analytic Consulting and Research Services, Truven Health Analytics, formerly the Healthcare Business of Thomson Reuters. Why do we continue to drive off the road despite guard rails? Order sets and clinical pathways promised to be the solution to physician practice variability.
