Advance Praise for Pursuing the Triple Aim

"Clear and focused, with a wealth of insights into how health care organizations have reinvented themselves to achieve unprecedented levels of quality, efficiency, and patient experience. This is storytelling at its best, and a must–read for those who are serious about providing top quality health care." Lucian Leape, MD, Harvard School of Public Health

"If your life is dedicated to medical care you should read this book. It offers insight and evidence of what can be: vastly better medical care outcomes, patient and care giver satisfaction, and lower costs. This is not a utopian dream, it is the reality in a growing number of care giving institutions." Paul O′Neill, former US Secretary of the Treasury

"I have never seen, nor had I dared hope to see, an era in American health care when transformational improvement is more possible than this moment. We have the templates. If you doubt it, I urge you to read this book. You′ll learn about exciting innovations that are real, that are happening out there right now. And that can be replicated, with adaptation, anywhere. This book shows what health care looks like that delivers on our urgent social need for success on the Triple Aim: better care, better health, and lower cost through improvement." Donald Berwick, MD, MPP, former president and CEO, IHI
