The book has rightfully excluded insurance and regulatory framework out of discussion as it would distract from main theme of this book. Also, regulatory and insurance environment is constantly changing and it should follow the health"care" delivery rather than reverse.
In the conclusion as well as throughout this book, the author has intentionally avoided labeling examples (used to explain the concept) as "exemplary" systems. This would have skewed the reader and would slow down/halt the process of free thinking and innovative ideas.
I would like to recommend to an improvement in the layout - each chapter could have a brief summary or sub content list. It will make it easier to follow since headings and subheadings are not numbered.
Overall, highly recommended especially for physicians learning to become physician leaders.
