Healthcare reform in the United States struggles because the organization design challenges are great and the change difficulties even greater. Fairview’s experience provides important evidence and lessons that can help advance our understanding of effective healthcare and create more sustainable healthcare systems. This chapter provides healthcare system administrators evidence and alternatives in the pursuit of implementation.
The authors are grateful to Val Overton, Julia Harrington, and Sally Wahman for their contributions and insights into the change and design process. This case drew on information provided in interviews, the Fairview website, and published articles on the change process.
