Transition to 21st Century Healthcare:
A Guide for Leaders and Quality Professionals
This book explains why the fundamental structures of 20th century American healthcare have failed to keep up with American industry in terms of quality and cost. It describes how this has led to the introduction of industrial mass production concepts in American healthcare, such as Lean and Six Sigma, and how the resulting industrialization breaks down the 20th century model and opens the way for a new vision of healthcare.
Mapping the Path to 21st Century Healthcare:
The Ten Transitions Workbook
The author’s previous book, Transition to 21st Century Healthcare: A Guide for Leaders and Quality Professionals, provides a high-level view of American healthcare as transitioning through a period of industrialization, breaking down the fading structures of 20th century healthcare, and paving the way for 21st century healthcare.
Mapping the Path to 21st Century Healthcare: The Ten Transitions Workbook offers a review of the fundamentals of the transitional structure presented in the first book, but shifts its focus from concepts to practical application, beginning with an industrialization evaluation that serves as preparation for the transitions. This workbook provides a detailed guide to the development and use of the ten transitions that are critically important in assessing your organization’s progress in moving towards the 21st century healthcare model.
