For those interested in looking at the endless fractals of society as I do, I thought you might enjoy this latest one I came across tonight while running a work flow analysis of mid-level providers in a high volume emergency department. It basically shows that 20% of the conditions they treat represent 80% of the time they spend at work; a perfect Pareto distribution... In case you were curious, the data for physicians looks the same.

FYI- if you have no idea what I am talking about, and/or are having a hard time actually seeing the fractal this building block is a miniscule part of, try thinking about reiteratively combining this "building block" up and down the healthcare delivery food chain (and remember it is itself made of different "building blocks") with a similar Pareto spread of the work flow of other healthcare providers and patients.

Enjoy
