Mintzberg begins in part one by confronting myths about health care, including: We have a system of health care Health care institutions can be fixed with more heroic leadership The health care system can be fixed by more administrative engineering The health care system can be fixed by more categorizing and commodifying to facilitate more calculating The health care system can be fixed with increased competition Health care organizations can be fixed by running them more like businesses Part two examines how health care is organized, in relation to what we know about differentiation, separation, and integration in organizations and systems in general. Mintzberg shows that in health care the inclination has been to do an awful lot more differentiating than integrating. This has resulted in all sorts of excessive separations: curtains across the specialties, sheets over the patients, and walls and floors between the administrators. The favored form of organizing health care - the professional organization - is the source of its great strength as well as its debilitating weakness. Part three then offers guidelines to reframe the core components of health care: strategy, organization, scale, ownership, management, and the ´´system´´ itself. For example, managing has to be about care more than cure, and organizing has to favor communityship over leadership, collaboration over competition. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Kruse.

John R. Brinkley (July 8, 1885-May 26, 1942) became nationally known as the ´´goat gland doctor´´ for his controversial medical practice that promised virility for his male patients. He was a pioneer in radio broadcasting and advertising, as he promoted his services to his large listening audience. Despite detractors and critics in the medical community thoroughly discrediting his methods, Brinkley operated clinics and hospitals in several states for two decades. When opposition from the organized medical community resulted in the revocation of his radio and medical licenses he turned to politics, with two failed runs for the governorship of Kansas. Brinkley´s rise to fame and fortune was as precipitous and was his eventual fall. At the height of his career, he had amassed millions of dollars, yet he died sick and nearly penniless as a result of a number of malpractice, wrongful death, and fraud suits brought against him. 1.
