Managing Disruptive Change in Healthcare: Lessons from a Public-Private Partnership to Advance Cancer Care and Research
By (author): Arnold D. Kaluzny, Donna M. O’Brien
Healthcare faces unprecedented global challenges. Rapid advances in genomics, computational sciences, and technology — as well as the new focus on value-based care and an increased trend toward healthcare commercialization — represent disruptive changes to an already-fragmented delivery system. The healthcare establishment has been slow to adapt, and now faces rising cancer-care costs and lags in outcome improvement and genomically informed interventions.Managing Disruptive Change in Healthcare codifies the US National Cancer Institute’s lessons from utilizing a public-private partnership with community hospitals to navigate the change needed to increase patient access to high-quality cancer care, and enhance hospitals’ capacity to conduct and support research initiatives. The treatment of complex diseases requires a delivery system capable of translating scientific advances into care that is coordinated across the full continuum; this book offers a blueprint to just such an infrastructure.
