Dr. David Lawrence has had a long and distinguished career in medicine, crowned by his current role as CEO and Chairman of Kaiser Permanente, the largest non-profit healthcare system in the world and the leader in integrated medical care. A sophisticated, team-based approach that draws on the strengths of the healthcare organization as well as on community resources, integrated care is a most cost-efficient healthcare business model. It also gives patients that all-important sense of control over their conditions and provides the kind of care they can navigate and trust: personal, safe, cohesive, and effective.In From Chaos to Care, Dr. Lawrence shares his unique medical and leadership perspective, outlining a blueprint for lasting and healthy change for the business of health care. Rich with stories of the ways in which integrated, team-based care succeeds on both the human and organizational fronts, this book is an urgent manifesto for the implementation of high-quality and cost-effective health care for all. For doctors and insurers, specialists and healthcare administrators alike, From Chaos to Care illuminates the path to the future of American medical care.
