In every industry there is a guiding principle. Properly heeded, this principle informs and guides its participants from glory unto glory. When ignored or overshadowed by other lesser principles, the industry can only hope for limited success, if any at all.
The guiding principle is not the same in every industry, but it does and should spring from a common root: service. In the case of health care, the overriding principle is and should be the improvement of patients’ lives.
