Pronovost Calls for an 'SEC' for Healthcare Quality

This is a foolish comment. The SEC reporting mechanisms are founded on centuries of double entry book-keeping, for which there is no corollary in health care statistics. It is another "improvement" from government. The government gave us rotary dial phones with party lines. Deregulation gave us the iPhone 5.
