Great Divide

A point in time identified by Professor Lawrence Henderson between 1910 and 1912 when, for the first time, a random patient with a random disease consulting a doctor chosen at a random time stood better than a 50-50 chance of benefitting from the encounter. After 1912, patients had an ever increasing expectation that they would not only survive the encounter, but enjoy improved health as a result thereof.
