After John R. Patrick's career at IBM, he took a seat on the board of a teaching hospital. He was surprised to learn how hospitals and physicians lagged at adopting information technology, and was appalled at the needless complexity of healthcare delivery processes. Instead of shaking his head and walking away, Patrick took action.

The problems described are so vast that they seem not a boulder but rather a mountain that this author skillfully picks up, turns over and twists around to look at from every side. The solutions offered seem reasonable, sensible and achievable. All in all a very clear view of a stupendously huge problem with many chilling and disturbing aspects of which I had no idea before reading this very, very good book. It is to be hoped that policymakers in the new Administration will read this book.
