Summer Reading List

Rich Umbdenstock, AHA President and CEO

On my summer reading list is a terrific report just published by AHA's Health Research & Educational Trust. TRUST: Meeting Our Mission, 2003-2012 is a collection of 10 short essays by the industry luminaries who have received HRET's TRUST Award since its inception in 2003. They are succinct, one- or two-page pieces on team-based care (David Lawrence), the “triple aim” (Don Berwick), building infrastructure for quality (Brent James), focusing on health (Janet Corrigan), controlling costs (Bob Brook), leadership development and health care equity (David Satcher), innovation (Glenn Steele), end-of-life care (Atul Gawande,) patient-centered care (Maureen Bisognano), and even civility (Gail Warden) - I'm sure they will spark plenty of ideas. Vantage Point will take a break for the next few weeks. I hope that you are able to take a break this summer - and do some great reading.

Thanks,
Rich
