Summary note:
"In Redefining Health Care, Michael E. Porter and Elizabeth Olmsted Teisberg set forth a new vision of the health care system in which every actor is focused on improving value, as measured by health outcomes per dollar expended. The authors prescribe a powerful and actionable agenda for change." "To reform health care, we must reform the nature of competition itself. Redefining Health Care describes how all participants - providers, health plans, employers, suppliers, consumers, and governments - can redefine their strategies, operating practices, and organizational structures to unleash stunning improvements in the health value delivered." "As this book's many examples illustrate, individual actors can transform the health care system now: they need not wait for government intervention. The payoff? Dramatic improvements in health - and the value of health care spending - that benefit all of us."--BOOK JACKET.
