ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the state of the U.S. health care system. He notes the consensus that the system needs to be reformed and that the U.S. Congress still has to enact laws that will address this need. The efforts of health care industry leaders in identifying problems within their scope and devising means to resolve such problems are cited. The steps taken by the American Hospital Association (AHA) and the launching of the Center for Transforming Healthcare by the Joint Commission are offered as examples.
