How can America's health-care system be transformed to provide consistently higher-quality and lower-cost care? Nothing else in health care matters more.

Prescription for the Future identifies some standout medical organizations that have achieved higher-quality, more patient-focused, and lower-cost care, and from their examples distills 12 transformational practices that could transform the entire health-care sector.

Ezekiel J. Emanuel looks at individual physician practices and organizations who are already successfully driving change and the specific practices they have instituted. They are not the titans everyone seems to know and assume to be the "best"; instead, Emanuel has chosen a select group - from small physician offices to large multispecialty group practices, accountable care organizations, and even for-profit companies - that are genuinely transforming care.

Prescription for the Future shines a bright diagnostic light on the state of American health care and provides invaluable insights for health-care workers, investors, and patients. The book gives all of us the tools to recognize the places that will deliver high-quality, effective care when we need it.
