    Top Book Recommendations for Healthcare Executives




    Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game
    by Michael Lewis

    "Why would a healthcare executive and technologist read about how Oakland A’s General Manager Billy Beane ran a baseball team?" asks Mark Boxer, executive vice present and chief information officer, Cigna Corp. "Because healthcare is a data-driven business where we use data to segment populations, advance evidence-based medicine, and target populations most at risk. The theme of this book is that we must not make decisions based on instinct, but on data, insights and analytics.  That vision holds the key to improving our healthcare system. Beane showed that the collected, conventional wisdom of the baseball world for over the past century was subjective.  He embraced a vision of insights, statistics and analytics that enabled his team to compete and win."

      Thanks Aubrey for this wonderful list of book suggestions. I know some of the books from your list and truly they are contributing ones. I can surely say that reading, applying and experiences are together constitutes a perfect work environment in any business field, the same applies to healthcare industry as well. I'm a writer by profession and have some good experiences reading great books from various authors. I think adding one or two book suggestions from my side will be okay for you. 1- The Executive Guide to Healthcare Kaizen: Leadership for a Continuously Learning and Improving Organization - By: Mark Graban and Joseph E. Swartz 2- Leadership in Healthcare: Essential Values and Skills (American College of Healthcare Executives Management Series) - By Carson F. Dye Both books are having something great to share from my perspectives and I hope it will contribute to someone else as well. Regards, John Williams http://cheapessaywritingservice.co.uk
