Jan’s best book recommendation and why:
The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell. He uses great examples that everybody can relate to. It gets me thinking about smart technologies like the smart phone and the tablet – and how that evolution has found its way into medical devices, such as smart pumps, because that technology has made a huge difference in how we deliver care to our patients.
