Abstract:
Unprecedented economic and policy forces are restructuring health care and insurance markets. Academic Health Center (AHC) leaders face critical challenges in developing a comprehensive vision and leading its implementation in their organizations. The challenges reflect the fact that AHCs are complex adaptive systems that cannot be effectively changed through traditional command-and-control management approaches. This report offers an analysis of these challenges and then summarizes recommendations for how leaders can approach and achieve enterprise transformation by building new platforms on which AHCs can serve their vital roles in their local communities and across our nation. Lessons learned from five examples of initiatives currently under way at AHCs reinforce the recommendations proposed to accelerate needed transformation.
