For years, now, Paul Fogel has been the Dean of Healthcare Productivity. If you've participated in either his ACHE or HFMA sponsored seminars, you will agree that Paul brings a level-headed, pragmatic, clear approach to the seemingly arcane topic of labor productivity management.

"Superior Productivity in Health Care Organizations" is simply... a superior effort. Paul deftly covers the topics critical to implementing logical, understandable, consistent, collaborative labor productivity management "systems" in your hospital. When I refer to "systems", I mean both people and technical systems - Paul rightly considers the former key to your success.

Directed toward hospital leaders, this book serves as a blueprint for: 1) establishing appropriate, achievable staffing standards, 2) effectively monitoring and reporting progress toward goals and 3) implementing accountability (including rewards) for performance - all three the core elements of a Culture of Productivity.

Not only have I purchased a copy for myself, but have bought and distributed several more - to both hospital leaders and fellow consultants.

This book was an excellent, easy to read, step by step book on establishing accountability, which ultimately feeds into Superior Productivity. As an organization trying to shift its culture, this book was an incredible eye opener on how to instill the changes throughout our organization to bring upon the results we are looking for. I found myself learning and finding the answers I have been looking for to push our changes with productivity to the next level. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is struggling to get there departments within their organization to be accountable for their costs and improve their producivity. The Author's experience on the subject is shown within this book as he quickly and easily guides you towards Superior Productivity.

Paul Fogel takes you on a rollercoaster ride through hospital efficiency (or lack thereof) and spits you into a featherbed of knowledge that only a mind of pure genius could construct. He walks you step by step through a morass of pitfalls, complacency, pedagogues and territorialism and guides you to the promised land of positive change with diplomacy, compassion and common sense. I highly recommend this book to anyone dealing with changing corporate culture with a view to increasing service quality and overall efficiency. You will learn from the master.
