about this item

In this three-part assessment of the current state of health care, Mintzberg begins by confronting common myths about health care, including that it should be treated like a business. He then examines how health care is organized in relation to what we know about differentiation, separation, and integration, revealing that health care is generally imbalanced, with more differentiation happening than integration. According to Mintzberg, this imbalance has resulted in excessive separations: curtains across the specialties, sheets over the patients, and walls and floors between the administrators. Ultimately, Mintzberg offers guidelines to reframe the core components of health care: its strategy, organization, scale, ownership, management, and the system itself.
