Introduction
Marcelo Viale (Argentina, 1995) is introducing long overdue reforms of hospital management and health care delivery that are revolutionary in the Argentine setting. He is wresting hospital budgetary and administrative decision making from outmoded, highly centralized administrative structures and assigning that responsibility to democratically created community boards and implementing a series of organizationa and technological changes that are dramatically improving the quality and cost-effectiveness of hospital care.
