What happens when the demanding consumers who nearly brought the U.S. automobile industry to its knees focus the same kinds of pressure on the industry that represents one-seventh of the U.S. economy - health care? The health organizations that combine quality, convenience, information, choices, and lower costs will be the winners in this revolution.
This is a must-read for those in every corner of the immense health-care web. With its strong narrative style, this is a book that will be read and talked about by everyone concerned about the future of American health care, whether or not they agree with her ideas.
“An engaging book about the changes in the American health-care industry. It is a multifaceted work in which [she] addresses the impact of technology on health-care costs, the structure of health-care financing, and the emerging role of consumer choice.” — New England Journal of Medicine
