Abstract

Human beings are inherently resistant to change. In our technologically driven world, change happens fast, thereby regularly challenging us inherently change-averse humans to adjust. Only through rapid, effective, outcomes-driven change can we address the numerous challenges facing health care today. And as health care leaders, it is our responsibility to learn how to become the most effective change leader so that we can deliver the changes in systems, processes, and thinking required to deliver ever-improving quality, safety, and access to care while managing its cost.
