“Redefining Health Care: Creating Value-Based Competition on Results” (Harvard Business School Press) by Michael E. Porter, the Bishop William Lawrence University Professor, based at Harvard Business School, and Elizabeth Olmsted Teisberg, a senior institute associate at Harvard Business School’s Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness and an associate professor at the University of Virginia’s Darden School, has been awarded the 2007 James A. Hamilton Award by the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). Given annually, the award honors a management or healthcare book deemed most outstanding. “Redefining Health Care” presents a new model for the ailing U.S. health care system that focuses on improving value for patients as measured by health outcomes per dollar expended.
