Healthcare in America is rapidly changing, and with it, so are the relationships between doctors and hospitals. More than ever, both must be aligned at multiple levels to survive and thrive in a value-based world.This book is for: Leaders of healthcare organizations who would like to better understand the physician/system dynamic; leaders of medical groups who would like to more effectively engage the professionals they serve; leaders who are seeking to better understand the various physician alignment and compensation models available; leaders who are stuck in poorly performing organizations, not necessarily healthcare-related, in need of rapid turn-around.

The authors, one a physician leader, the other an operations expert---both seasoned executives in a high-profile healthcare organization in the Midwest---developed and applied a leadership style, "Tomahawk Leadership", to turn-around a struggling employed physician group, and in so doing, revitalized its parent health system in remarkably short order.
