I learned all about how Adaptive Design techniques and methods can profoundly change healthcare. It is exciting to learn how our commitment to digital product test and learn methods are so aligned with Dr. Kenagy’s extensive experience and commitment to Adaptive Design

Clear guideline for changing our healthcare delivery process at the clinic and hospital level. Includes the front line staff and patients voice for helping make lasting and effective changes. A guide that everyone in healthcare should read.

5.0 out of 5.0 by Smook MD on September 30, 2012
I read this book initially as an assignment. I found it to be very insightful and actually practical. With the ongoing changes in the healthcare arena, turbulence and chaos have become the norm. I am fascinated about the approaches utilized. I am excited that pessimism can be changed into optimism. It provides a foundation in which to start. Medicine can be draining. It is, however, the passion of many. This approach I believe will provide sustainability. Hopefully, with a smile! This allows us to provide care for our patients with their benefit being the primary goal.
a excellent guide for handling the whitewater of today's healthcare

5.0 out of 5.0 by Tim D from Dallas on November 24, 2009
Dr Kenagy as surgeon,scholar, patient and thinker has set a course for improving healthcare at the point of impact. This is not simply a thoroughly researched book as much as a how to guide for improving the delivery of healthcare in challenging times.I found it nearly impossible to just read; rather I had to study it and take notes, review those notes and then see how it can apply to my own situation. Rarely has a book intrigued me and enticed me with so much possibility as much as this one.Oh, I am sure he will have his detractors and I suspect they will come from academia. but pay the haters no heed. This book has immediately applicable tools to improve your office, clinic, hospital or practice.
This book can make your life better, if you let it

5.0 out of 5.0 by Karl B. Palmer on December 23, 2009
Dr Kenagy has hit a home run with this book. He has condensed the most important concepts of the well vetted Toyota production system methods and created a book that any healthcare worker can read, understand immediately, and use the knowledge to begin improving patient care. This book is an easy read, the methods are intuitive, and if effectively implemented in a department, Adaptive Design can empower staff and provide the best care possible (until you improve it some more!)
