Reengineering Health Care: A Manifesto for Radically Rethinking Health Care Delivery

There's a great new book by Jim Champy and Dr. Harry Greenspun that just got released. It's titled, Reengineering Health Care: A Manifesto for Radically Rethinking Health Care Delivery

Here are some editorial reviews of the book:

Reengineering Health Care gets to the core of transforming our current system by advocating the widespread use of IT, eliminating inefficient practices, and keeping the system focused on a healthy individual and not on a broken process.”
--Newt Gingrich, Founder of the Center for Health Transformation, and former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives

“This book is a prescription for streamlining health care. Using the techniques that have successfully transformed business into customer-focused and efficient organizations, the authors provide a step-by-step approach to improving health care processes, guiding health care into the next generation of Lean delivery systems.”
--Dr. John Halamka, Chief Information Officer, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

“It isn’t reform that will fix our ailing health care system, its reengineering. Champy and Greenspun highlight organizations that have transformed, and reinvented, themselves by reengineering care delivery–they’ve lowered costs, improved care quality and patient safety, and increased the satisfaction of those giving and receiving care. Every clinician, hospital executive, and politician should read this book.”
--Bill Crounse, M.D., Senior Director, Worldwide Health, Microsoft Corporation

This book doesn’t just demonstrate the immense potential of health care reengineering to revolutionize health care delivery: it offers a clear roadmap for realizing that potential in your own organization.
