Book Description :

Based on a study of eleven health care systems and their response to managed care and cost containment pressures, this provocative book challenges the nation to create a supportive environment for the evolution of our health care system. Written by the country?s foremost authority on health services management and a team of experts, Remaking Health Care in America promotes an integrated approach to health care?one that focuses on alliances, linkages, and partnerships with public health and community/social service agencies. As a concrete guide to achieving this transformation, the authors present a conceptual framework for the integration of finance, human resources, strategic planning, total quality management, information systems, physician integration, and clinical integration that will ultimately result in an effective community health care management system. Second Edition Flap copy "This is a must-read book for those interested in understanding the current state of health care delivery organization and the promise and difficulties of creating integrated health care delivery systems. The authors describe the challenging steps that must be taken to convert the nation's fragmented delivery system into an integrated delivery system capable of providing care in a consistent, high quality and safe way."—David Lawrence, M.D., president and CEO, Kaiser-Permanente The original edition of Remaking Health Care in America transformed ideas about managed care and systems integration across the health care field and has become a standard reference for building organized delivery systems. To meet the challenge of the changing state of today's health care field this second edition includes updated information on topics such as the need for more clinically integrated care, greater accountability, stronger links between health systems and their communities, and new ways of creating value. This essential resource-written by a team of scholars led by Stephen Shortell, the country's foremost health services management researcher, examines the progress of nine health care delivery systems that were analyzed in the book's first edition. On the basis of this recent research, the authors reveal the successes, failures, and lessons learned and take on important and timely health care concerns such as the public backlash against managed care and the challenges of providing care to people with chronic illness. The book is filled with a wealth of illustrative cases and practical recommendations. In addition, the authors identify the key factors for implementing a new model of delivering health care services in a cost-effective way to individuals and communities.

Their vision of the community health management system points the way for realistically creating health value for individuals and populations."—David Kindig, M.D., professor and director, Graduate Programs in Health Services Management, Department of Preventive Medicine, School of Medicine, University of Wisconsin-Madison "This book will prove a useful tool for anyone who is interested in helping the United States move toward a more integrated, community-oriented health care system."—William C.

Book Description :

In response to a request by the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA), the Institute of Medicine proposed a study to examine definitions of serious or complex medical conditions and related issues. A seven-member committee was appointed to address these issues. Throughout the course of this study, the committee has been aware of the fact that the topic addressed by this report concerns one of the most critical issues confronting HCFA, health care plans and providers, and patients today. The Medicare+Choice regulations focus on the most vulnerable populations in need of medical care and other services-those with serious or complex medical conditions. Caring for these highly vulnerable populations poses a number of challenges. The committee believes, however, that the current state of clinical and research literature does not adequately address all of the challenges and issues relevant to the identification and care of these patients.

Book Description :

In a joint effort between the National Academy of Engineering and the Institute of Medicine, this books attempts to bridge the knowledge/awareness divide separating health care professionals from their potential partners in systems engineering and related disciplines. The goal of this partnership is to transform the U.S. health care sector from an underperforming conglomerate of independent entities (individual practitioners, small group practices, clinics, hospitals, pharmacies, community health centers et. al.) into a high performance "system" in which every participating unit recognizes its dependence and influence on every other unit. By providing both a framework and action plan for a systems approach to health care delivery based on a partnership between engineers and health care professionals, Building a Better Delivery System describes opportunities and challenges to harness the power of systems-engineering tools, information technologies and complementary knowledge in social sciences, cognitive sciences and business/management to advance the U.S. health care system.

Book Description :

The United States has the highest per capita spending on health care of any industrialized nation but continually lags behind other nations in health care outcomes including life expectancy and infant mortality. National health expenditures are projected to exceed $2.5 trillion in 2009. Given healthcare's direct impact on the economy, there is a critical need to control health care spending. According to The Health Imperative: Lowering Costs and Improving Outcomes, the costs of health care have strained the federal budget, and negatively affected state governments, the private sector and individuals. Healthcare expenditures have restricted the ability of state and local governments to fund other priorities and have contributed to slowing growth in wages and jobs in the private sector. Moreover, the number of uninsured has risen from 45.7 million in 2007 to 46.3 million in 2008. The Health Imperative: Lowering Costs and Improving Outcomes identifies a number of factors driving expenditure growth including scientific uncertainty, perverse economic and practice incentives, system fragmentation, lack of patient involvement, and under-investment in population health. Experts discussed key levers for catalyzing transformation of the delivery system. A few included streamlined health insurance regulation, administrative simplification and clarification and quality and consistency in treatment. The book is an excellent guide for policymakers at all levels of government, as well as private sector healthcare workers.
