A Disruptive Solution for Health Care


October 31, 2008

By: Clayton Christensen, Jerome H. Grossman, M.D., and Jason Hwang, M.D.

Our healthcare system is in critical condition. Each year, fewer Americans can afford it, fewer businesses can provide it, and fewer government programs can promise it for future generations.

We need a cure, and we need it now.

With that in mind, The Innovator’s Prescription provides a comprehensive analysis of the strategies that will improve healthcare and make it affordable.

Readers will discover how:

  • “Precision medicine” reduces costs and makes good on the promise of personalized care
  • Disruptive business models improve quality, accessibility, and affordability by changing the way hospitals and doctors work
  • Patient networks enable better treatment of chronic diseases
  • Employers can change the roles they play in health care to compete effectively in the era of globalization
  • Insurance and regulatory reforms stimulate disruption in healthcare

Clayton Christensen is the Kim B. Clark Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School and is the architect of Disruptive Innovation. Clay was named the World’s Most Influential Business Management Thinker in 2011 and 2013.
