Perverse incentives built into fee-for-service medicine have stymied innovations in health care. Now, contracts that reward value instead of volume are spreading. Health care is at a crossroads, and the job of fixing it belongs to front-line clinicians, and especially to physician leaders.
After more than a decade of cross-industry research, Chris Trimble makes the case for change and innovation. Nationwide, tens of thousands of opportunities for physician-led initiatives exist to build new care teams to transform health care delivery. A groundswell of innovation leaders, determined to rebuild health care one step at a time, he contends, can give health care what it needs.
Trimble is an expert in making innovation happen in large organizations. He has worked with clients including GE, IBM, Microsoft and others in roundtable discussions and executive education programs. He is on the faculty of the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth and the Dartmouth Center for Health Care Delivery Science. He has co-written five books, among them best-sellers The Other Side of Innovation: Solving the Execution Challenge and How Stella Saved the Farm.
