American health care has made great strides in the past hundred years. Life expectancy has increased dramatically and advances in medicine and treatments have eradicated many life-threatening diseases. However, in today's health care arena there is divergence between our health needs, the structure of our health care system, and how health care is delivered and funded.

In Forces of Change, David A. Shore has collected the leading thinking from experts in the field on how our health care system can benefit from important lessons from other industries and effect transformational change that truly serves all stakeholders well.

Jha of the Harvard School of Public Health; Eric D. Kupferberg of Northeastern University; Lucian Leape of the Harvard School of Public Health; Jeff Margolis of the TriZetto Group, Inc.; and David Shoultz of Philips Electronics.
