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."
