Book Talk: Healthcare Transformation

Some of our books are written as training materials for shopfloor workers. Others are written for mid- and top-level managers. But few are written for the highest level: board members.

Healthcare Transformation: A Guide for the Hospital Board Member, by Maulik Joshi and Bernard Horak, is one of those few. This new book is designed to help hospital board members play an active role in transforming their institutions.

Each chapter focuses on action steps that can be taken to disseminate best practices, build organizational quality, establish transparency, and develop the culture and leadership needed to facilitate change.

The book helps board members focus on what problems exist, how they can be changed, the best practices for addressing a particular problem, and the questions board members should be asking.

With dramatic change coming in healthcare, this is a timely and valuable book.
