Demanding Medical Excellence - Doctors and Accountability in the Information Age, Michael L. Millenson
84 Michael L. Millenson Demanding Medical Excellence - Doctors and Accountability in the Information Age
University of Chicago Press 226664 USA 1997 0226525872 / 9780226525877 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good This work seeks to reveal in an accessible fashion how a revolution that owes as much to laptops as lab coats is transforming medical care. The author, Michael L. Millenson, a three-times Pulitzer Prize nominee as a reporter for the "Chicago Tribune", combines the experiences of real people and evidence from the scientific literature to tell the story of the information explosion and the application of quality-measurement techniques to medicine. Balancing criticism and praise, he illustrates serious flaws and errors in contemporary American medical practice, and shows ways in which care can be improved and many thousands of lives saved. The current debate over health care generally focuses on finance: how do we contain the cost of care, and how do we ensure that all citizens can afford access to it? The most important issue - the quality of treatment - is too often ignored. Millenson shows that while American medicine may be the most sophisticated in the world, treatment is alarmingly inconsistent. Medicare data, for example, show that in 1996 an elderly man or woman was four times as likely to undergo surgery for back pain living in Fort Meyers, Florida, as a patient with the same symptoms living in Manhattan. Yet Millenson balances similar disturbing stories with optimistic, inspiring accounts of recent improvements in patient care. For example, a new computer-based programme in a Utah hospital has dramatically reduced treatment-caused deaths, while in another hospital a database is being created to give all doctors access to the latest medical treatments. The book concludes that the major barriers to protecting and systematically improving medical care are cultural, not technical. Patients will not receive the consistently excellent care they deserve until physicians and health care plans are given the proper financial incentives to change, have the clinical information to guide them, and most important, accept the moral responsibility to implement change and make it work 433 pages.

The dark channel of money and power that flow beneath the relaxed surface of Australian culture are perilous places.Behind the gossip columns and headlines, the famous names and celebrity makeovers, life hangs precariously by a thread - one wrong move spells disaster. For this is the world of networkers and social climbers, the games they play, the places they go and the circles they swim in determine who is in and who is out, who's rich and who's going belly-up.For years Graham Richardson, Trevor Kennedy and Rene Rivkin, high profile politicians and business men, deftly navigated these murky waters with the secret help of offshore advisors. The eventual exposure of their hidden Swiss bank accounts uncovered a world of hidden secrets that rocked the nation.This best-selling and award-winning volume, now in paperback, takes readers through all the twists and turns that led to the discovery of one of Australia's greatest political and financial scandals. 356 pages.

What will distinguish these companies from the traditional 'controlling' organizations will be mastery of certain basic disciplines.

Authors First 243943 Australia 2013 095865171X / 9780958651714 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine The real estate industry is masterful at creating and promoting its own message as news. Have you ever heard an agent tell a buyer it is not the right time to buy? Real Estate Uncovered is designed to help you cut through the hype in order to make an informed decision while avoiding hidden traps and dirty tricks. These brutal strategies and their unsavoury tactics will be laid bare in Real Estate Uncovered. What you once viewed as normal real estate practice before reading this book will be viewed in an entirely new light. The book exposes a system that over quotes to sellers, conditions them into expecting less and then crunches them on pricing, profits on needless advertising and eventually uses a sales process that undersells the paying client's major asset. Buyers are given low false price quotes to entice them to an auction that they have no chance of winning, spending thousands of dollars on property inspection reports in the process. Real Estate Uncovered also highlights in a much fairer and more effective way to buy or sell. The reader will know how to identify their trusted real estate advisor having read Real Estate Uncovered. 223 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Bloomsbury 241261 Great Britain 2008 0747592896 / 9780747592891 Softcover Good Condition From inside a surreal bubble of pure Americana known as the Green Zone, the US-led Coalition Provisional Authority attempted to rule Iraq following the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime. Drawing on interviews and internal documents, Rajiv Chandrasekaran tells the memorable story of this ill-prepared attempt to build American democracy in a war-torn Middle Eastern country, detailing not only the risky disbanding of the Iraqi army and the ludicrous attempt to train the new police force, but absurdities such as the aide who based Baghdad's new traffic laws on those of the state of Maryland, downloaded from the net, and the twenty-four-year-old who had never worked in finance put in charge of revitalising Baghdad's stock exchange. "Imperial Life in the Emerald City" is American reportage at its best. 356 pages. Tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
