Porter's book is helping to create a national agenda for health care reform, and Mayo Clinic is ready to be a part of that change. During the next months, the Clinic's Carleton Rider says Mayo will continue to look into the future of integrated health care and what that will mean for changes at the Clinic."
"Redefining Health Care is a must read for anyone interested in health policy. The authors have identified the single most important problem in health care and it is a problem health economists tend to routinely ignore. To wit: We don't bundle and price health services the way we would if the medical marketplace even remotely resembled an efficient, competitive market."
"Redefining Health Care has the makings of a classic, one that likely will be must reading for all those interested in health care delivery. Porter and Teisberg have raised the health care systems debate to a substantially higher, and hopefully value-producing, level. For simply changing the language of the argument, we should be grateful."
"This book is incredibly valuable for politicians, policymakers and managers in healthcare who cannot ignore this book when talking about sustainable healthcare in the future. The book offers inspiration and guidance to help everyone involved in healthcare to improve patient value. It shows with amazing clarity how to accomplish this."
"Redefining Health Care presents a fresh, clear-eyed view of the problems of the American health care system, and shows how value-based competition is the only real solution. This bold, insightful book will stimulate every participant in health care delivery to reexamine current strategies and practices, and achieve vastly better results."
"Redefining Health Care is at once revolutionary and practical. Porter and Teisberg aim to convert today's dysfunctional health care system into one in which value-based competition leads to better health and greater efficiency. This book deserves to be read carefully by everyone concerned with the future of health care in the United States."
"This book is a major contributionand may prove to be THE major contributionto the age-old debate about why so many people don't get what they want from our health care system. The authors lay out a practical and detailed agenda for all the major actors in the system. What are we waiting for?"
"A leader's guide for the next decade. Porter and Teisberg's book provides a new strategic perspective that will enable dramatic improvement in the quality and efficiency of patient care. The insights here will rechannel the health care debate productively for years to come."
