Customer-centric, market-driven solutions for fixing America´s broken healthcare system-from one of the industry´s most innovative thought leaders. Healthcare accounts for one-fifth of the U.S. economy. Everyone agrees that our current system is broken and needs repair. It must cost less, tackle chronic disease, and shift resources away from acute and specialty treatments into care management, behavioral health, and health promotion. The issue isn´t what to do. It´s how to do it. The answers lie in customer-driven reform, enlightened governmental regulation, and full-risk payment models that reward quality outcomes, service excellence, and efficient operations. Customers are demanding more value. In response, enlightened health companies are reconfiguring business models to deliver appropriate, accessible, holistic, reliable, and affordable care. According to this new model, caregivers inform and engage patients; payers reward health companies that deliver great outcomes and great service at competitive prices; health plans strive to keep their members as healthy as possible; investors fund innovative companies whose products and services delight customers; health companies employ liberating technologies that enhance system-wide access, fairness, safety, compassion, and affordability. In The Customer Revolution in Healthcare, top healthcare consultant and strategist David W. Johnson explains how aligning economic incentives with patient needs will deliver better outcomes at lower costs with superior customer service. The market will be won by disruptive, bottom-up, and customer-centric competitors who will deliver kinder, smarter, and cheaper care-to all.

Das Bachhaus Eisenach bewahrt einen geschliffenen Pokal, den Johann Sebastian Bach um 1735 entgegennahm. Das eingravierte ´´VIVAT´´ sollte zum Weingenuß einladen. Der Komponist vieler Festmusiken läßt in seiner Kaffee-Kantate (BWV 211) die Aria singen ´´Ei, wie schmeckt der Coffee süße´´ und in der burlesken ´´Bauern-Kantate´´ (BWV 212) singt man sich in der Schenke animierend zu, ´´Wer durstig ist ist, mag winken´´. Diese drei Texte sowie Briefe, Besoldungsverordnungen und andere Quellen lassen ahnen, daß es in Bachs Leben heiter ausgelassen zugehen konnte. In dem vorliegenden Band wird nach dem Alltags- und Festtagsleben dieses Currendesängers, Organisten, Kantors, Hofmusikers und Städtischen Musikdirektors gefragt, dessen Besoldungen als Dienstnehmer zeitlebens aus Zahlungen wie auch aus Naturalien (Getreide, Fisch, Bier, Wein, Holz) bestanden. Den Deputaten sowie dem Verzeichnis seiner Hinterlassenschaft von 1750 ist zu entnehmen, daß der Tisch in der Kantorenwohnung in der Thomasschule zu Leipzig für die Großfamilie sowie die vielen gern gesehenen Gäste reichlich und dem gehobenen Lebensstandard entsprechend gedeckt gewesen ist. ´´Zu Tisch bei Johann Sebastian Bach´´ öffnet somit ein noch weitgehend unbekanntes Terrain: Der Autor spürt den sozialen Verhältnissen dieses großen Musikers nach und veranschaulicht mit zahlreichen Abbildungen und originalen Dokumenten dessen Lebenswelt zwischen Eisenach und Leipzig. *** The Bach House at Eisenach owns a goblet presented to Johann Sebastian Bach in 1735. The inscription ´´VIVAT´´ is intended as an invitation to enjoy wine. The composer of many celebratory pieces includes in his ´´Coffee Cantata´´ (BWV 211) the aria ´´Oh, how sweet the coffee tastes´´, while in the burlesque ´´Peasant Cantata´´ (BWV 212) the words ´´Those with a thirst should beckon´´ are sung at a lively inn. These three texts, along with letters, payment orders and other sources suggest that Bach´s lifestyle could be cheerful and relaxed. This book examines the everyday and holiday life of this choirman, organist, cantor, court musician and city musical director, whose salary throughout his life included payment in kind of natural products (grain, fish, beer, wine, wood). From these allowances and from the list of Bach´s effects on his death we can see that the table in the cantor´s lodgings at the Thomasschule in Leipzig was well-laden for the large family and their many welcome guests, in accordance with a high standard of living. Zu Tisch bei Johann Sebastian Bach enters a largely unknown territory: the author seeks evidence of the composer´s social relationships and uses a wide range of illustrations and original documents to depict his life between Eisenach and Leipzig.
