1-0 out of 5 stars First we start with a mistake...
Having observed the healthcare industry for the last couple of decades, I would like to point out a flaw in the author's recommendations:
5-0 out of 5 stars the next 20 years, explained
Michael Porter, of value chain and competitive advantage fame, has taken on the US health care system.Your reviewer, who is speaking from inside the system, can guarantee that both his diagnosis and his proposed fix are bang on. In short, you bring the US healthcare system in line with other industries by making information about the outcomes of healthcare available to consumers, then letting them choose. How to get there from here takes up most of the book, and it is as brilliant and thoughtful as Porter fans have come to expect. Read this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars A sentinel work on healthcare reform
Michael Porter and Elizabeth Teisberg have presented a sentinel work in the field of healthcare management.American healthcare is capable of providing the very best skill, professional expertise, and technology the world has ever seen. What is failing in our healthcare system is the management and business organization required deliver value to the recipients of this expertise-- patients.

5-0 out of 5 stars ... although impractical !
Ok. Let us consider it realistically and professionally. Nothing to say about the book more than what all others have said. Simply great. However, enjoying a book is not, and will never be, a goal in itself. What matters is what benefit you can get out of IMPLEMENTING what is in it.
5-0 out of 5 stars I HAVE BEEN DISNEY-FIED
EVERY HOSPITAL ADMINISTRATOR DOWN TO THE HOUSEKEEPERS NEED TO READ THIS BOOK. THIS SHOULD BE MANDATORY WHEN A NEW EMPLOYEE ENTERS THE WORK PLACE.OUR HOSPITAL HAS BEEN STRUGGLING LIKE MOST WITH WORRY ABOUT THE BOTTOM LINE MORE THAN THE PATIENT. THIS BOOK WILL BE USED IN OUR DEPT (I WORK WITH CANCER PATIENTS) FOR OUR UNIT MEETING DISCUSSIONS. I AM GOING TO MAKE IT A MANDATORY READ. THANKS FRED....I AM DISNEY-FIED

5-0 out of 5 stars Not Just for Hospitals!
I have been a Lean Production Systems Practitioner for over twenty years and have had the privilege of learning from some of the original teachers of Lean in the United States. I have been influenced by Deming, Juran, Goldratt, Peters, Covey, Kotter, Drucker, Greenleaf, Senge and many other authors on leadership and management of change and continuous improvement and organizational learning. I first read Fred Lee's book as I began a project to implement lean systems in several hospitals. "If Disney Ran Your Hospital" ranks as one of my favorite books on not only excellence in customer service but on leadership and organizational development. I especially enjoyed the discussion in Chapter 10 of the"Five Traps" that organizations and its leaders must avoid. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to HS for non medical types
Using this text for a distance learning course.Seems to provide a good introduction to the subjects of Health Services.Written on a level I can understand, not being a medical person, but a hospital support person.

3-0 out of 5 stars Oddly parochial title ...
If this book is only about the US health service, why doesn't the title say so?There are quite a few other countries out there in the world, and almost all of them have health services!

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent introductory overview to the US health system.
Williams and Torrens have developed one of the best introductory texts on the US health system. The book has clear learning objectives, useful references, and helpful diagrams. The American health system is farily andaccurately described, warts and all. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Review of Law in Medicine
Pozgar's book is organized by legal topic and cites relevant case law in all instances.It is an excellent overview of American law as it applies to the health care practitioner or organization.He has taken a topic thatit difficult to communicate and made it very enjoyable reading.Studentswill find it much easier reading than most graduate level texts.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great information for those new to health care law.
This book was very useful to me. I am a health information management student planning to enter a graduate health administration program. I took the class and this particular book was the text. Our instructor is a lawyerand runs risk management at our university hospital. The text furtherexplained basic legal priciples and related them to health care.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Intro Into Health Care Finance
As stated in the preface of the book, the goal of the book, "was to create a text that introduces students to the most important principles and applications of healthcare finance..."This book was an excellent introduction into finance.Not only did it explain accounting and financial terms and theories, it uses excellent examples of real life health care situations to further the reader's understanding of the topics.This was my first time exposed to finance of any type.At the end of the book, I felt like I had a firm understanding of the basics.Excellent book for beginners.

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb textbook
As a cardiologist, I have used many textbooks over the years. I am now a hospital's Chief Medical Officer and am enrolled in an MHA program. Dr. Gapenski's book is one of the best-written textbooks I have ever used. It clearly and consisely discusses financial concepts as they apply to healthcare. He has the ability to make the most complex concepts easily understood.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent text with Case book & teaching guide available
This text is used at both the University of Florida and Wisconsin's programs for the Executive programs for the Masters in Health Administration.I just finished the course in November, 2000 - a course taught by the author.It was excellent.While it is written to meet the needs of a student with no financial background, the material can also be challenging to the CPA. A case book andteachers guide are also available seperately, and would be helpful to someone teaching a Finance course for the first time. ... Read more

I received this book as a gift. There are quite a few books on this subject on the market and this one is the best. I too could not put it down and finished it in 3 days. It's a huge book, a great resource that is well researched and written.. I have a few friends who've purchased this book and really loved it too. I can highly recommend this book
5-0 out of 5 stars Understanding Health Policy
This book is very well written. Though it crams a lot of information into a small number of pages, it is easy to understand. It is excellent at covering all angles of a topic.

4-0 out of 5 stars A little too focused on clinicians
I needed a book to use for a class I am teaching.This book, while excellent was focused on the clinicians' point of view, somewhat to the exclusion of other angles.

1-0 out of 5 stars Non-Working Disk
The disk that came with the book is a data disk only, and does not contain the program that created the data.That is why the data disk is not a workable disk, unless you have The Medical Manager installed on your computer!The book is too geared to be used with the Medical Manager Software Program, and is difficult to read it as a stand alone book.
4-0 out of 5 stars Medical Manager review
I am an instructor for the Medical Manager class and have been for over 5 years.I have used almost every version possible with the Medical Manager.This is a fairly good book for students to learn from.As long as the person reads the instructions and then looks at the exercises, they should have NO problems.However, if the person just looks at the exercise and does not read the material, they may have difficulty.Some of the exercise/pictures are different then the actual reading part but not too many.Overall this book makes it fairly simple to learn this program.

1-0 out of 5 stars not very good
Confusing to follow instructions for data entry.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE SECRET TO DECLUTTERING YOUR LIFE
I've been a subscriber to FlyLady's yahoo group for nearly a year, yet I felt like I wanted to really know what got her started. This book was great for giving me a a behind-the-scenes peek.
4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful if you're paralyzed by perfection, but...
Sink Reflections is a fun, lighthearted read that will inspire anyone to take better care of herself and her home. The get-organized program she recommends is perfect for people who are paralyzed by perfection, (e.g. you never clean because you don't have time to do it "the right way").
5-0 out of 5 stars Change your life.Have peace in your home.
This book isn't for everyone. It only works if you are a sidetracked homemaker.Born organized people don't get it.My house is cleaner than it has ever been, bills are paid ahead, Papers are filed or thrown away, I only work on the house an hour a day or less, and it is very liveable. I work 50 hours a week and don't have a lot of time for housework.No one's house is too cluttered or dirty for this system not to work.[..] ... Read more

Where is our nation's health-care system headed in the next decade? And how will we cope with the inevitable collision of rising costs, politics and human needs?
4-0 out of 5 stars Thoughts on Health and Health Care 2010
This is a very interesting prediction of what health care may hold for us this decade.I enjoyed reading forecasts of what the population will be like and their lifestyles, as well as buying habits. Health careers that will be booming were discussed as well as what medical advances will flourish. I found it interesting that this publication does not really predict a nursing shortage as everyone else is predicting. The discussion of insurance plan growth and changes was less interesting to this reader but necessary. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Inaccurate and vapid
If you've ever had any actual experience in public health, you will probably recognize this book for the sham it really is. Public health systems in the real world just don't behave in the idealized way that Turnock describes. Moreover, Turnock is far too uncritical of HMOs, which consitently fail to provide actual assitance (not just theoretical assistance) to patients who need it. There is also no understanding at all here about the ways in which class differences affect dstribution of health care coverage, or any discussion of what we might be able to do about it. 5-0 out of 5 stars Wow...
Boy, I'm surprised at the reaction the book is getting! I have this book, and it's really quite good - I'm an MS-Epidemiology candidate, and it's really helped me with the fundamentals of the field. Incidentally, in response to the implication that Dr. Turnock is less than qualified to put forth an effort such as this, you might want to investigate that, you can find his impressive accompishments at the school's website. Board certified in Preventive Medicine and Public Health, and former director of the IDPH, to name a few? Sounds qualified to me. I'd recommend this book to any PH student or someone looking to learn the basics...I don't hesitate to rank this right up there with Gordis. Cheers!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best
I've seen a lot of health care texts and this one is by far the best book of its kind.Very current and thorough coverage of all aspects of health care delivery. This book really shows you how all of the components of the health care system fit together. The author has done a remarkable job and all students in health care and health administration need to read this book.KUDOS!!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Fluffy
This book is near 600 pages, but it could be condensed to 300 easily: by cutting back on some simplistic flow charts and over-explanation.Maybe the goal was to make the book readable for the high school level, but I didn't find its style or level appropriate for a graduate (MBA) textbook.One further annoyance was the authors' shameless and open promotion of socialized health care.A more balanced take would give the authors greater credibility. ...

From the organization, origin, and performance of hospitals, to the nuances of financing health care, managed health care, long-term care, and mental health services, Health Care USA spares neither depth nor statistical analysis. Charts and graphs help illustrate the meticulously researched data, and exhaustive notes and an index round out this "must-have" reference guide for any reader seeking a better understanding of America's governmental health care bureaucracy.
1-0 out of 5 stars I would have given it a minus three stars if it had been available
This is the hardest to read textbook I have ever owned.Textbook authors need to understand that they are writing for students, not their peers.I want the basics.I want to be able to read it in my own language and not have to continually look up words that the majority of people never use.I have other things to do with my time besides trying to decipher what the authors are trying to say.It's as if it's written in code and you have to figure out what it means.It's like learning a different language.They could have put the important stuff in a book about 50 pages long and left out 400 pages of filler.

3-0 out of 5 stars Helpful - but out of date
I had this text book overnighted to me due to the fact that my campus bookstore didn't have it in stock.I paid the shipping then found out later that the book had been updated and my classmates were all using the fourth edition.The editions are rather similar and the book is still helpful.There are enough "real time" examples as well as charts & graphs to make this a necessary text for Health Politics.The appendix section is also noteworthy. ...
