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.
