Book Description

A groundbreaking prescription for health care reform - from legendary leader in innovation.

Our health care system is in critical condition. Each year, fewer Americans can afford it, fewer businesses can provide it, and fewer government programs can promise it for future generations. We need a cure, and we need it now.

In The Innovator’s Prescription, Clay Christensen applies the principles of disruptive innovation to the broken health care system with two pioneers in the field—Dr. Jerome Grossman and Dr. Jason Hwang. Together, they exhaustively examine the challenges facing health care today and propose a set of clear, innovative, and actionable solutions that will both reduce the cost of health care and lead to improved health outcomes for millions.

Featured Review

A Brilliant Analysis of the Fundamental Problems and Potential Solutions.

“I have long since lost track of how many books and articles I have read, and how many conferences I have attended, over the past decade on the causes and proposed solutions for our healthcare mess. By the time I finished the introduction and Chapter 1 of The Innovator's Prescription, I recognized there is more truth and insight in those forty pages than in all of those books, articles, and conferences combined. The book presents an astonishing way of deconstructing and visualizing the fundamental business model problems.”
