“The need for change and great leadership in healthcare is not unique to the US—all healthcare systems around the world are facing the challenges of rising costs and variability in the quality of healthcare services provided. A 2010 report by the OECD concluded that there is no perfect healthcare system, and that all countries have the opportunity to improve the value of care they provide. We believe that great leadership is critical to continue to adapt and innovate in the increasingly complex and global healthcare environment. In this chapter, we describe what great leadership is and provide practical advice for those aiming to improve the value of or access to healthcare around the world.”
