Abstract

AS THE health care system prepares for an unprecedented test of its resilience, it is useful to begin to reflect on some of the lessons that may be learned and that may influence future reform of the health care system. While many think we have one of the best health care systems in the world, others suggest that it is not a system at all and that it could be much more integrated. Although the fault lines are deep, they usually remain ignored or forgotten about, or just seem too hard to change, until there is a crisis that opens them up for all to see.
