Navigating the Business of HealthcareHealthcare has changed immensely over the past few generations - house calls from a local family doctor are a thing of the past, and the deeply personal relationships and bonds between provider and patient are eroding with the demands of for-profit insurance.

As the daughter of a busy family doctor, Barb also shares vivid anecdotes from her childhood which illuminate the heart of a doctor´s calling and demonstrate how insurance can dictate and interfere with quality of care. This book is a must-listen for everyone who wants to make informed, effective decisions about healthcare - knowledge is power! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mary Harrison.

In nearly every medical-decision-making encounter, the physician is at the center of the discussion, with the patient the recipient of the physician´s decisions. Dr. Robert Alan McNutt starts from a very different premise: the patient should be at the center. McNutt challenges the physician-directed, medical-expertise model of making decisions, presenting a practical approach augmented by formal exercises designed to give patients the tools and confidence to compare and contrast their healthcare options so they can make their own choices. He addresses a number of scenarios, including heart disease, breast cancer, and prostate cancer - conditions that pose a range of choices that patients may face about diagnoses and treatments. After providing a clear explanation of what is the highest quality medical-decision-making information, McNutt teaches patients to use that information to weigh the harms and benefits of their treatment options, empowering them to ask critical questions as they take a stronger hand in their own care. Your Health, Your Decisions moves from specific scenarios that commonly baffle patients to a systematic exploration of how to make medical decisions. By offering patients the tools they need to be full partners in their own health care, McNutt demystifies what can be a bewildering and even terrifying process. 1. Language: English.

People keep track. In the 18th century, Benjamin Franklin kept charts of time spent and virtues lived up to. Today people use technology to self-track: hours slept, steps taken, calories consumed, medications administered. Ninety million wearable sensors were shipped in 2014 to help us gather data about our lives. This audiobook examines how people record, analyze, and reflect on this data, looking at the tools they use and the communities they become parts of. Gina Neff and Dawn Nafus describe what happens when people turn their everyday experiences - in particular, health and wellness-related experiences - into data and offer an introduction to the essential ideas and key challenges of using these technologies. They consider self-tracking as a social and cultural phenomenon, describing not only the use of data as a kind of mirror of the self but also how this enables people to connect to and learn from others. Neff and Nafus consider what´s at stake: who wants our data and why; the practices of serious self-tracking enthusiasts; the design of commercial self-tracking technology; and how self-tracking can fill gaps in the health-care system. Today no one can lead an entirely untracked life. Neff and Nafus show us how to use data in a way that empowers and educates.

New breakthrough thinking in organizational learning, leadership, and change. Continuous improvement, understanding complex systems, and promoting innovation are all part of the landscape of learning challenges today´s companies face. Amy Edmondson shows that organizations thrive, or fail to thrive, based on how well the small groups within those organizations work. In most organizations, the work that produces value for customers is carried out by teams, and increasingly, by flexible team-like entities. The pace of change and the fluidity of most work structures means that it´s not really about creating effective teams anymore, but instead about leading effective teaming. Teaming shows that organizations learn when the flexible, fluid collaborations they encompass are able to learn. The problem is teams, and other dynamic groups, don´t learn naturally. Edmondson outlines the factors that prevent them from doing so, such as interpersonal fear, irrational beliefs about failure, groupthink, problematic power dynamics, and information hoarding. With Teaming, leaders can shape these factors by encouraging reflection, creating psychological safety, and overcoming defensive interpersonal dynamics that inhibit the sharing of ideas. Further, they can use practical management strategies to help organizations realize the benefits inherent in both success and failure. Presents a clear explanation of practical management concepts for increasing learning capability for business results Introduces a framework that clarifies how learning processes must be altered for different kinds of work Explains how Collaborative Learning works, and gives tips for how to do it wel Includes case-study research on Intermountain healthcare, Prudential, GM, Toyota, IDEO, the IRS, and both Cincinnati and Minneapolis Children´s Hospitals, among others Based on years of research, this book shows how leade 1.

Artificial intelligence is a phrase that carries with it heavy connotations. Although artificial intelligence is nothing more than the capacity for logic and understanding that machines can exhibit, in the minds of most Americans artificial intelligence is almost a Pandora’s box that, when opened, will eventually signal the human race’s doom....The idea that machines pose an existential threat to human beings has been around for at least 60 years. It goes something like this: intelligent machines eventually realize the uselessness of human beings and turn against their creators. Or this: intelligent machines reduce human to cattle or even food after a dramatic war that human beings lose. Human beings have created countless languages and writing systems that have allowed us to expand collective human knowledge over a period of thousands of years. Much of the knowledge that we utilized today, knowledge about the math, science, and the stars, originates from observations made thousands of years ago but which were recorded by writing systems, allowing this knowledge to be preserved and passed down. Artificial intelligence has been used for many business, financial, medical, and other applications, and scientists and researchers are actively studying how these applications can be expanded to make human life simpler. The applications of AI will be explored in this book, both the real applications to business, finance, medicine, and health and the theoretical applications. Even the sensational, perhaps exaggerated applications of AI will be explored in the context of taking a look at how AI may potentially be applied in the future. The purpose of this discussion is for the reader to understand what AI is by understanding how it is used. Artificial intelligence is certainly a blessing at this point, but the reality that it may become a curse is not lost on some people. Understanding the full implications of AI requires a deep kn 1.
