Clinicians ought to be playing a central role in making the changes in the health care system that will allow the system to offer better outcomes, greater ease of use, lower cost, and more social justice in health status.
Instead, most of the proposed changes that are today called « health care reform » are actually changes in the surroundings of care rather than changes in the care itself.
Clinicians have an opportunity to exercise leadership for the improvement of care, but they must first agree to address the aims of reform and to adopt an agenda of specific changes in their own work that are likely to meet the social needs driving the reform movement.
Health services research offers a sound scientific basis for identifying promising improvement aims for clinician-led reform.
