Design to Survive: 9 Ways an IKEA Approach Can Fix Health Care & Save Lives

0 0 5 Author: Pat Mastors
“Offers a foundation for both providers and consumers to find the balance, and move to a world from provider-centered care to patient-centered care. ” —Stefan Gravenstein, MD, MPH, Professor of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University

The US spends the most in the world on health care and research, yet our outcomes are among the worst in industrialized nations. Hundreds of thousands die every year from medical harm. Imagine a world where health care took a page from the IKEA furniture company—where expenses were streamlined, quality was predictable, customers participated, and everyone shared in the cost savings.

Through colorful analogies, stories from families and top doctors, and the author’s quest to find out what happened to her own father, Design to Survive serves up key strategies for patients, families and providers, with the conviction that we can do better.

“Had me hooked from the first page … chock-full of stories, vital information, checklists, links, and resources … a must own for both clinicians and patients. ” —Fred Lee, author of If Disney Ran Your Hospital

“A tremendous toolkit for getting safe care … Mastors’ is a wonderfully pragmatic mind. There is a lot we physicians can learn from her. ” —Marty Makary, New York Times–bestselling author of The Price We Pay

“I couldn’t put this book down … sensible and practical advice never before shared. ” —Ilene Corina, The Cautious Patient Foundation
