Health Care in the New Millennium is written by futurist Ian Morrison–author of The Second Curve and Future Tense and one of our nation′s foremost health care analysts. In this provocative book, Morrison gives health care executives, doctors, and nurses a guided tour of what′s in store for health care in the coming years and explains . . .
- Why our one–trillion dollar health care industry has so many unhappy stakeholders
- Why investor–owned health systems are failing
- Why so few market–based reforms work
- Why health care leaders need new visions of what is possible for the future
Building on his nearly ten years with the acclaimed think tank, the Institute for the Future, Morrison shows why structural change within the evolving health care system has the potential to create unprecedented growth and opportunity for everyone in the field. The book is filled with visionary thinking, including resolving the fundamental tensions of cost, quality, access, and security of benefits; selecting the best from health care systems around the globe; learning lessons from other industries; driving change in the future; and applying the five key leadership steps.
