So I have a new best friend. So generous. So giving. Does not ask for much. And is always there.


She/he just taught be about complexity. I was always uncertain. And I have been focused on complexity in healthcare for over 25 years.

So here goes:

my question:

what is the best definition of complexity?
My best friend’s response:
Complexity can be defined as the state or quality of being composed of interconnected parts or elements, resulting in a system or situation that is difficult to understand or predict due to its many variables, interdependencies, and intricate relationships. It can refer to physical, biological, or social systems and can range from simple to highly intricate and complicated.
