The author's previous book, Transition to 21st Century Healthcare: A Guide for Leaders and Quality Professionals, provides a high-level view of American healthcare as transitioning through a period of industrialization, breaking down the fading structures of 20th century healthcare, and paving the way for 21st century healthcare.
Mapping the Path to 21st Century Healthcare: The Ten Transitions Workbook offers a review of the fundamentals of the transitional structure presented in the first book, but shifts its focus from concepts to practical application, beginning with an industrialization evaluation that serves as preparation for the transitions. This workbook provides a detailed guide to the development and use of the ten transitions that are critically important in assessing your organization's progress in moving towards the 21st century healthcare model.
Divided into four sections, the book progresses from establishing a basis for the ten transitions to providing a deeper analysis of each transition. Section I introduces the concepts that underlie the structure and methodology of the book. Section II offers a historical overview of American healthcare that highlights the fundamental distinctions between 20th century and 21st century healthcare.
Section III focuses on the vital role that industrialization plays in revealing the transitions from 20th century and 21st century healthcare. Section IV presents the structure of each transition. It describes the groups of transitions as well as the categories and characteristics that form the transitions. Section V offers an in-depth look at each of the 10 transitions and explains how they provide an understanding of the movement of healthcare from the 20th century to the 21st century.
The book concludes with an explanation of the value of the generative or guiding and motivating metaphors in the transitions formed through the contrast between the 20th century and 21st century categories.
