System Concepts - Part 1- What is a System?

This vlog is from the Center for Systems Improvement and is the first in a series about the concept of systems. We begin with a discussion of the definition of a system and introduce the idea of systems thinking. We then look at how that applies to improving clinical quality and economic efficiency in systems of care, particularly for high-risk time-sensitive conditions like cardiac arrest. This post features an excerpt from an amazing lecture given by the late Dr. Russell Ackoff – a major contributor to the field of systems thinking.
