The E-Myth Physician
Michael E. Gerber
0066214696
Jan 2003
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
Gerber has had great success with his previous E-Myth books, and this is the sixth in the series. The E-Myth posits that, because most professional business owners are successful in their field, they assume they are going to be successful entrepreneurs as well, and this assumption often leads to failure. In doctors' harried world, time is at such a premium that the ability to work on their practice (Systems Thinking) is usually superseded by the need to continue working in their practice (Tactical Thinking). As a result, the practice suffers, with patients frustrated by waiting, a tense and impatient staff, and poor cash flow. The E-Myth teachings show the doctor how to regain control over her practice, not by trying to manage people better (which is impossible) but by creating a repeatable system...


Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century
Staff of Institute of Medicine

Textbook Hardcover

From the New England Journal of Medicine, August 30, 2001
The Institute of Medicine's Committee on Quality of Health Care in America has issued its second and final report, Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century. The committee has done an excellent job, but its report is as noteworthy for what it omits as for what it says. It identifies and analyzes with great insight and clarity deficiencies in the quality of our present medical care delivery system, and it is persuasive in outlining how the system ought to work. But it does not say much about the fundamental causes of those deficiencies. Nor does it address the central question: Can we really ``cross the quality chasm'' in medical care without major reform of the whole system? The committee's earlier report, To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health...

The Tuberculosis Movement
Michael E. Teller
0313257485
Apr 1988
Hardcover
·
 
Review
“In 1957, Richard H. Shryock published a very fine history of the National Tuberculosis Association. Teller's study builds on Shryock's pioneering study, describing and analyzing the crusade against tuberculosis in the US from the last decades of the 19th century to 1917, when it had matured into what the author calls 'a modern health campaign.' Based on an extensive reading of primary and secondary sources, including manuscript materials, Teller provides a cogent account of a most important aspect of the history of American public health. This book is highly recommended for collections related to urban history, the history of medicine and public health, and American social history; the author is to be congratulated on a job well done.”–Choice

Mama Might Be Better off Dead: The Failure of Health Care in Urban America
Laurie Kaye Abraham
0226001393
January 1993
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
The vicious circle of poverty and illness is powerfully portrayed in Abraham's ( Reinventing Home ) account of an uninsured, black, four-generational family in one of Chicago's "poorest and sickest" neighborhoods. Included in their medical misfortunes: the amputation of both legs of a diabetic grandmother; a drug-addicted husband on kidney dialysis who undergoes a kidney transplant; a partially stroke-paralyzed son; and children who lack primary care and immunization. This personally observed, lucid chronicle and call for reform of our ailing health system covers all levels of responsibility in the medical establishment, and deserves scrutiny by our administration's health service planners. Abraham concludes that a reformed health care system should set limits on health spending while stressing "caring" over...


Valuation of a Medical Practice
Reed Tinsley
0471299650
May 1999
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
What is a medical practice worth? The answer depends, in part, on whom you ask. Purchasers would say value is based on what they plan to bring to the table; sellers assume it's simply a matter of formula applied uniformly across the board. In actuality, both are correct—to a degree. While there are basic guidelines used to ascertain values, valuation must be determined on a case-by-case basis, as each has a unique set of circumstances that ultimately affects final outcome. Covering the specific issues that impact valuation, Valuation of a Medical Practice takes you through the entire process, highlighting pitfalls and mistakes that are commonly made and that should be avoided. Written by Reed Tinsley, Rhonda Sides, and Gregory D. Anderson, leading experts in the field, this comprehensive resource clears up the...

This probing study accepts the free market process while casting a discerning and skeptical eye at its pitfalls.
