The author offers her views on the significance for physicians and health care personnel to adopt change in order to catch up and fit in with the modern health care systems. She believes that the traditional model is showing its age and inappropriateness as the health care market squeezes out inefficiencies and demands quality and transparency that can best be achieved through real teamwork, and does not tolerate variations in cost and quality.
