Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Paul R. Glunz, MD (Medical College of Wisconsin)
Description: This timely new publication deals with the changing roles of physicians in what is becoming a more organized, market driven, cost effective, outcome oriented, and most of all, integrated system(s) of healthcare delivery.
Purpose: The book calls for physicians to adapt to evolving integrated patterns of health care delivery by developing new skills that will facilitate their essential role as leaders. Criteria for the development of physician delivery networks, and recommendation for meeting the divergent needs of physicians participating in networking delivery systems are discussed. The book concludes with an excellent discussion of creating incentives, monetary and nonmonetary, for physician performance and a positive, rewarding practice environment.
Audience: The audience includes all physicians inclined to assume a leadership role in planning and implementing health care decisions within collaborative, integrated medical delivery systems.
Features: The text incorporates charts, tables, and case studies that contain practical, concise, and useful information.
Assessment: This publication comes at a time when the need for physician leaders to participate in healthcare management decisions is critical. Management is about collaboration and interaction. Traditionally, medical practice has been about independence and autonomy. Will the new breed of physician executive understand that the management role is immensely different from that of a medical practitioner? This book may very well help bridge the gap.
