Written by a groundbreaking figure of modern medical study, Tracking Medicine is an eye-opening introduction to the science of health care delivery, as well as a powerful argument for its relevance in shaping the future of our country. An indispensable resource for those involved in public health and health policy, this book uses Dr. Wennberg's pioneering research to provide a framework for understanding the health care crisis; and outlines a roadmap for real change in the future. It is also a useful tool for anyone interested in understanding and forming their own opinion on the current debate.

Review:

The arguments for integrated delivery systems, shared decision making, informed patient choice, and investment in comparative effectiveness research, as set out by Wennberg in this book, should be compulsory reading for policy makers and healthcare leaders. In putting forward these arguments he throws down the gauntlet to the medical profession to act on evidence of variation or else have others who are less well qualified do so instead. (British Medical Journal)

There are many books on healthcare reform, health delivery, or systems research, but none that combine the science with practical experience like this one does (Northeastern University Bouve College of Health Sciences)

About the Author:

John E. Wennberg, MD, MPH, is Peggy Y. Thomson Professor (Chair) in the Evaluative Clinical Sciences, and Founder and Director Emeritus of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice.
