Redefining Health Care: Creating Value-Based Competition on Results

    By Michael E Porter, Elizabeth Olmstead Teisberg
The U.S. health care system is in crisis. At stake are the quality of care for millions of Americans and the financial well-being of individuals and employers squeezed by skyrocketing premiumsnot to mention the stability of state and federal government budgets.
In Redefining Health Care, internationally renowned strategy expert Michael Porter and innovation expert Elizabeth Teisberg reveal the underlyingand largely overlookedcauses of the problem, and provide a powerful prescription for change.
The authors argue that competition currently takes place at the wrong levelamong health plans, networks, and hospitalsrather than where it matters most, in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of specific health conditions. Participants in the system accumulate bargaining power and shift costs in a zero-sum competition, rather than creating value for patients. Based on an exhaustive study of the U.S. health care system, Redefining Health Care lays out a breakthrough framework for redefining the way competition in health care delivery takes placeand unleashing stunning improvements in quality and efficiency.
With specific recommendations for hospitals, doctors, health plans, employers, and policy makers, this book shows how to move health care toward positive-sum competition that delivers lasting benefits for all."
