This book focuses on current federal sector efforts to shape healthcar e, i.e., to improve performance while containing costs. The solutions offered include redesigning processes and, where appropriate, the use of enabling technologies to do so. Since historically, innovations in the federal sector have often migrated to and profoundly changed pract ices in the private sector, many of the initiatives described involve some degree of partnering between the public and private sector. Other s represent work in the federal sector that address the same problems confronted in the private sector and offer valuable and transferable s olutions and approaches. The major strength of this book is its use of concrete examples that show how process redesign and the integration of enabling technologies have led to performance improvement and cost reduction in the largest healthcare system in the world.
