Healthcare faces unprecedented global challenges. Rapid advances in genomics, computational sciences, and technology - as well as the new focus on value-based care and an increased trend toward healthcare commercialization - represent disruptive changes to an already-fragmented deliverysystem. The healthcare establishment has been slow to adapt, and now faces rising cancer-care costs and lags in outcome improvement and genomically informed interventions. Managing Disruptive Change in Healthcare codifies the US National Cancer Institute's lessons from utilizing a public-private partnership with community hospitals to navigate the change needed to increase patient access to high-quality cancer care, and enhance hospitals' capacity to conduct andsupport research initiatives. The treatment of complex diseases requires a delivery system capable of translating scientific advances into care that is coordinated across the full continuum; this book offers a blueprint to just such an infrastructure.

Editorial Reviews

"This book demonstrates how a desire to develop a coordinated treatment plan for cancer care in the community setting can be achieved in a period of disruptive change in healthcare. The unique role of government as a catalyst and the power of public/private partnerships to facilitatelarge-scale and sustainable change backed by learnings from cancer research and cancer care delivery has created a set of principles applicable to health care in general in our country and worldwide. Its potential is overwhelming." --Gail L. Warden, President Emeritus Henry Ford Health System Detroit and Professor of Health Management and Policy University of Michigan School of Public Health, Ann Arbor
