“In health care, we tend to inundate our people with information, rather than enabling them to have insights. This concise guide will resonate with both senior and front-line managers who know they're engaged in unproductive work. They will see that reengineering is not overly difficult and can enable them to improve patient care and efficiency.”

Federation of American Hospitals
“It isn't reform that will fix our ailing health care system, its reengineering. Champy and Greenspun highlight organizations that have transformed, and reinvented, themselves by reengineering care delivery-they've lowered costs, improved care quality and patient safety, and increased the satisfaction of those giving and receiving care. Every clinician, hospital executive, and politician should read this book.”
--Bill Crounse, M.D., Senior Director, Worldwide Health, Microsoft Corporation

No one can read this book and not feel a profound call to action.”
--H. Stephen Lieber, CAE, President & CEO, HIMSS
