Redefining Health Care: Creating Value-Based Competition on Results

by Tom Pyle

Redefining Health Care: Creating Value-Based Competition on Results. By Michael E. Porter and Elizabeth Olmsted Teisberg. 506 pp. Harvard University Press. 1996.


As the son of a physician, I have a fondness for all things medical… except the current state of our American health care system!

Michael Porter and Elizabeth Treisberg have done the nation an outstanding service to analyze the current mess and propose a meaningful way forward, based on the successful strategic principles of competition. Rather than think about “procedures”, “access”, and “costs”, they call us to think bigger about “patient-centric”, “care cycles”, and “outcomes based”. As the new Obama administration prepares to undertake what many think will be a massive overhaul of the system, all health care consumers–which is all our us!–should read this book to be informed participants in the coming Great National Healthcare Debate.
